Assistant Clinical Professor Pennie Sessler Branden co-authored a report for Nursing Administration Quarterly about the importance of establishing a long-term strategy to prepare the next generation of nurse leaders. Pennie and her co-author argue that nursing needs more qualified nurse academicians and administrators willing to step into high-level leadership positions such as deanships and chief nursing officers. The article evaluates the available literature regarding succession planning in the nursing profession and offers pragmatic suggestions for stakeholders to engage in preparing new leaders in a deliberate and thoughtful manner.
