Your philosophy paper is due this week. It is not a hard paper to write if you follow directions. This is on a leadership theory not a nursing theory so please do not submit multiple pages about Watson, Roy, Orem, etc. You are free to include points from their theories, but that is not the focus of this paper. In addition, no need to include an abstract, so do not write one.

Be sure to state the theory and concisely explain what it is and how it works. Give examples of how you have seen the theory in action. How are you going to use the theory as a leader, at the bedside or in the boardroom? Where are you headed as a leader? Write the paper from the heart in an academic format. Please find current literature to support your position. Do not offer large amounts of what others have to say, I am interested in what you have to say.

For this assignment, you will choose a leadership theory that aligns with your nursing leadership philosophy. Reflect on how you have grown throughout your nursing career, including the time you have spent pursuing your baccalaureate degree. Choose a leadership theory that best matches your beliefs as a baccalaureate-prepared registered nurse. Define and explain your chosen leadership theory. Discuss how your leadership philosophy has evolved throughout your nursing career and how you envision yourself as a leader in the future. Provide examples of how you have and will use this theory as a nurse leader.
