Cultivating a spirit of inquiry using a nursing leading-following model

Most healthcare facilities have a culture and environment that does not require nurses to improve the quality of healthcare provided in these settings (Reale, 2019). This as well as the nature of nurse work and the schedules they keep has led to most nurses being unable to generate ideas and become innovative. The nursing leading-following model allows nurse leaders to cultivate a spirit of inquiry in their healthcare facilities. This model focuses on allowing nurses to think for themselves and ask questions in order to come up with the best possible methods of improving patient care and their work environments (Kolstad, 2017). The model encourages nurses to ask clinical questions that lead to forward thinking and increased generation of ideas.
