Research Publications

  • We would like to share an article entitled Enhancing Nurse Leader Influence: Optimizing Communication Traits through the Use of Twitter, authored by Hilary Ginsburg, Jeffrey Adams, Brant Oliver and Rob Fraser.  The work outlines, by use of the Adams Influence Model, developed by our esteemed colleague, fellow ONL member, and recent recipient of the AONE Small Research Grant award (Jeff!), how social media is an “untapped opportunity for nurse executives to enhance and expand their influence.”  Please take a moment to read the full brief by clicking here.
