Title. The experience of being a shift-leader in a hospital ward.

Aim. This paper is a report of a study to explore the experience of being a shift-leader, and how these nurses view the management of their shift.

Background. Professional demands on skilled and capable shift-leaders, who competently handle multi-disciplinary staff and patients, as well as operations and information, call for the development of efficient nursing leadership roles. Nevertheless, knowledge of shift-leaders' perspectives concerning their task management and leadership styles is relatively limited.
