Impeccable grades and test scores alone are no longer enough to set students apart from the crowd.

Strengths-Based Nursing Leadership understands that knowledge is power and that if nursing is to have power, it requires well-educated, dedicated, compassionate and knowledgeable nurses. Leaders understand the importance of transforming their departments into learning environments where knowledge, information, self-awareness and research are valued activities because they know that high-quality practice is inextricably linked to these activities. They encourage self-reflection and mindful practice because these are important tools to self-knowledge and self-improvement.


Since 1996, our goal has been helping students achieve their dreams.

In the rapidly changing world of healthcare and nursing, workplaces have to become continuous learning environments, and nurses have to embrace and embark on a lifelong journey of learning.


Special Focus On Strengths-Based Nursing

Strengths-Based Nursing Leadership creates conditions to further develop skills of autonomy, competence and relatedness by providing positive and meaningful feedback and opportunities to exercise and engage in choice.

People who are able to engage in self-determination are more likely to be motivated to do their best. This is because they experience greater freedom to act in accordance with their own values and beliefs, meet personal and professional goals, act in ways that reflect aspects of themselves and are interested in and enjoy what they do (Williams et al. 1996). Work environments that promote self-determination have employees who report high job satisfaction, have positive work-related attitudes, are more effective and creative in their job and have higher levels of psychological health and well-being (Gagné and Deci 2005).
