OPTION #1: THE ROLE OF NURSING LEADERSHIP IN QUALITY2fact that around 400,000 U.S. nurses serve in leadership roles and establish the largest sector of healthcare professionals, it is extremely possible for leaders in nursing to create positive outcomes in areas such as patient experience and quality of care (Batcheller, Zimmermann, Pappas, & Adams, 2017). By emphasizing influence of executives, leadership development programs, as well as staff engagement and empowerment, nursing leaders will have the skills it takes to positively influence the quality of health care.Nursing Leadership, Healthcare Quality, and the Quadruple AimIn order for consumers to receive consistent, safe, and quality health care, leaders and those who govern health care organizations must play an active role in effectively designing howcare is delivered. The goal is to attain care that is safe, efficient, effective, timely, equitable, and patient centered (Mastal, Joshi, Schulke, 2007). Nursing leaders are responsible for providing an effort for quality and safety improvement within their organization, by utilizing their personal expertise in operational duties as well as their expertise in clinical areas. Boards of Trustees play a huge role in a nurse leaders efforts to address and explain healthcare quality improvement and patient safety. There is a gap in knowledge among board members and nursing leaders about quality and safety. The Quadruple Aim aids in advancing the roles of nursing leaders in hopes of improving quality and patient safety (Batcheller, Zimmermann, Pappas, & Adams, 2017).
