Academic Keys – Who's Who In Nursing

Strathmore's Worldwide Professional Who's Who


Author's Philosophy:

I believe that every professional nurse with a significant and successful history in any realm of healthcare within their lifetime has a responsibility to teach and participate professionally with students, practicing nurses, and the community. This "giving effort" should include learned nursing theories and knowledge related to healthcare practice and leadership skills.

I believe that the word "professional" and "specialist" means that you, as a nursing leader, are willing to teach, lead, and manage healthcare by always being willing to give to others of your time and talents — often times, much more than you obviously receive. Your "gift of giving" to others means you will leave this world a much better place for mankind.


  1. To provide supportive methods and techniques of leadership that help to provide organizational stability and success.
  2. To provide supportive ideas for personal employee success and satisfaction.
  3. To present the magic and confidence of leadership theory and practice.
