Becoming a nurse leader is a unique challenge. Some nurses are called to be at the bedside, some behind a desk, yet others to become managers and leaders in our industry. Whatever your calling, in the nursing profession, you can find your niche, one of the fantastic rewards of being a nurse! However, if you are at the bedside, in the office, or in the car visiting homes, we are all viewed as leaders. Nurses are looked up to and counted on for our expertise, and are a part of one of the most trusted professions in the world. As we go on this journey of discovery together, we will explore how to be better nurses, stronger leaders, and maybe even better people.<br />I have worked in many fields. However, since becoming a nurse leader, I have discovered a glaring truth. There are many great nurses out there. There are few great nurse leaders. The medical field loves having nurses step into management roles and be a part of the decision-making process. However, nurses are not always ready for this role. So as a foundation I wanted to explore those characteristics that make an excellent nurse leader. We will break this into several parts as we explore these features.<br />

Esophageal anomalies and disorders in infancy and childhood include a wide spectrum of different diseases. These range from emergencies immediately after birth such as esophageal atresia (EA), necessitating an experienced team of neonatologists and pediatric surgeons, up to gastro-esophageal reflux disease in elder children, necessitating the pediatric gastroenterologist and visceral surgeon. In the last few years some fascinating pediatric surgical techniques have evolved, such as the thoracoscopic correction of EA or the FOKER technique for elongation in cases of long-gap, EA. Prof. Foker has developed this special traction technique and is the world's leading expert in long-gap EA.
