Abstract
As the nursing profession again faces a serious shortage, many are seeking ways to attract and retain talented people in the nursing profession.

Shared leadership is a nursing management model that supports staff n urses in extending their influence about decisions that affect their practi ce, work environment, professional development, and self-fulfillment. It is a way to strengthen continuous learning and enhance relationships, which a re the foundation upon which nurses can develop a new type of relationship with management and with each other.
