This paper examines the relationships between nurses in the same unit by drawing upon the author's own personal experiences and the experiences of other nurses in the field. Three proposed questions are answered using the author's unit as a kind of 'test case.' The writer uses this case to aid in making larger generalizations about nursing and about the nature of leadership in a unit of nurses.

From the paper:

"As I have said above, nurses are often thought of as part of a "second tier" of authority, between that of doctors and physicians assistants (as well as other non-medical personnel on the ward, such as secretaries and receptionists). But on the unit I was assigned to, a clear hierarchy of leadership presented itself within the unit of nurses themselves. This hierarchy was partially determined by assigned authority"
