 LSUHSC School of Nursing Leadership Model

The leader exists in a symbiotic relationship with their organizational environment. The leader is the producer of their organizational environment and adapts and responds to their organizational environment. Leadership is dynamic and changing with the leader being the producer and recipient of the changing organizational environment. The leader impacts the health care delivery system by leading themselves; engaging in the business of leadership and management, influencing others, leading change, leading complex organizational systems, and participating in executive board and stakeholder leadership as a service to the profession and community with the highest leadership ethical principles. This is presented in the model below. This leadership model provides the foundation for the nursing leadership continuing education at LSUHSC School of Nursing.
