Week 2 Assignment
Assignment: The Nurse
Leader as Knowledge Worker
The term “knowledge
worker” was first coined by management consultant and author Peter Drucker in
his book, The Landmarks of Tomorrow (1959). Drucker defined knowledge workers
as high-level workers who apply theoretical and analytical knowledge, acquired
through formal training, to develop products and services. Does this sound
Nurses are very much
knowledge workers. What has changed since Drucker’s time are the ways that
knowledge can be acquired. The volume of data that can now be generated and the
tools used to access this data have evolved significantly in recent years and
helped healthcare professionals (among many others) to assume the role of
knowledge worker in new and powerful ways.
In this Assignment,
you will consider the evolving role of the nurse leader and how this evolution
has led nurse leaders to assume the role of knowledge worker. You will prepare
a PowerPoint presentation with an infographic (graphic that visually represents
information, data, or knowledge. Infographics are intended to present
information quickly and clearly.) to educate others on the role of nurse as
knowledge worker.
