The nursing education leader provides visionary leadership to his/her organisation, as well as to the profession of nursing, and must have t he authority and resources necessary to ensure nursing education and training standards are met. This link between professional practice and operational activity of the organisation leads to greater involvement in decision making and fosters collaboration within nursing education and training and interdisciplinary teams. A collaborative approach contributes to quality education and training. It involves lecturers participating in a common vision for their workplaces and being recognised for their unique contribution. Nursing education leadership is required to work out work schedules and to ensure that proper service rendering is at the order of t he day. Nursing education leaders are appointed according to their academic achievement and not their managerial or leadership skills.
