This study was conducted with a total of 72 nurse academicians to identify the opinions of academician nurses on leadership and the factors which affect their leadership qualities in Turkey. Data was collected with a questionnaire consisting of 7 questions. Among the nurse academicians in the study, 89% perceived themselves as a leader; 81%, however, stated that their heavy work load affected them negatively. No significant difference was found between the position of the academicians and their perceptions of themselves as leaders (p>0.05). (C) 2013 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
