This article definitely is a call to action. I agree with the author about the lack of knowledge and skills observed in clinical leaders. We need to change that situation. The article is a call for all of us to improve and be aware about or own power, professional and ethical responsibilities as well. I think most nurses are afraid to give a step ahead and be a clinical leader. It is not easy but as our former president Obama said once: "Nothing worthwhile is easy". It is my responsibility to act, be a model and be a mentor to my colleagues because in that way, the patient care will improve and consequently my own professional satisfaction.
