Have we all heard enough talk about leadership yet? I don't know about you, but my mental capacities have been oversatu­rated by all the presidential, senatorial, congressional, gubernatorial, and state and local elections. The election process brings to mind a picture of a leader in the tradi­tional sense--a man or woman who wins the election, who is in charge, and who is the team leader. Real leadershjp is broader than that, however, and I challenge each of you to expand your views. In my opinion, there is no better example of leaders in ac­tion than nurses, at every level. Each nurse is a leader by virtue of education, job de­scription, and professional status.
