Reply by author to Jessica L. Smith on "Growing Future Nurse Leaders to Build and Sustain Healthy Work Environments at the Unit Level" by Rose Sherman and Elizabeth Pross (January 31, 2010).
I was delighted that you took the time to respond to the article. As you have so eloquently pointed out, every nurse is a leader. It is both a professional responsibility and a key to building a healthy work environment at the unit level. You clearly have this leadership mindset. As I read your letter, I could not help thinking that the future of nursing will be in good hands with professionals like you as our next generation of nurse leaders.
