Shared governance in nursing education requires strong faculty leadership. The Nurse Educator Workforce Development Advisory Council has charged the National League for Nursing (NLN) Task Group (TG) on Leadership in Nursing Education with "developing a comprehensive plan to guide NLN efforts aimed at developing a cadre ofleaders in nursing education." Although nurse faculty leaders are necessary to move the profession forward, there is little evidence to guide the development of such leaders. In this chapter, we report on our study to determine what nursing faculty leadership entails and how nurse educators become leaders in nursing education.
