Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative correlational research study was to examine the relationship between leadership styles of community college nurse educators in Texas and licensure passage rates of nursing community college graduates in Texas. Surveys were conducted to obtain the nurse educators' demographic data. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) was administered through the survey to investigate trends among community college nurse educators’ prevalent leadership styles. The research method included a correlational design, Pearson's Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient, regression analysis, probabilities, the validity and reliability of the MLQ instrument (Bass & Avolio, 2004). The current study suggested a positive relationship between leadership styles of community college nurse educators in Texas and licensure passage rates of nursing community college graduates in Texas.
