Angela Barron McBride has a long and renowned history in nursing leadership and education. Her new book, The Growth and Development of Nurse Leaders, carries on in the tradition of her previous successes, including The Growth and Development of Mothers--recognized as one of the best books of 1973 by both The New York Times and the American Journal of Nursing. From then to now, she has exerted leadership from many positions, which the American Academy of Nursing has celebrated by awarding her the status of "Living Legend." Now she looks back on lessons learned about leadership, discussing them in a style that is part personal narrative and part analysis of issues.

Through the book's three sections, McBride addresses the major views of leadership that have occupied center stage in recent decades: leadership as personal; leadership as achieving organizational goals; and leadership as transformational. As a mental health nurse and developmental psychologist, she brings to the subject a practicality and insightfulness that will empower you when considering your leadership, no matter your specialty or career stage.
