Abstract
Nursing faces a crisis because there exists a dearth of qualified nurse academicians and administrators willing to step up to high-level leadership positions such as deanships and chief nursing operators. This article critically appraises the available literature regarding succession planning in the nursing profession and offers pragmatic suggestions to the profession to engage in succession planning in a deliberate and thoughtful manner.
