Those of us involved in delivering healthcare recognise that we are in a time of profound transition, particularly within the complex post-pandemic world. Consumer expectations, complexities of healthcare and a global shortage in the nursing workforce present significant challenges. Nursing leaders need to both pause and reflect, as well as adapt and develop new innovative ways to carry the nursing profession into the future. Reports from both the International Council of Nurses (ICN) and the 74th World Health Assembly have advocated for an investment in nursing leadership, in order to encourage nurses to engage and manage the current challenges (ICN, 2020; Burton, 2021). Different care models and practices need to be developed; one area that is under consideration is advanced nursing practice.
