Federal health care systems must plan for the future by retaining and developing nurse leadership. Creation and implementation of a succession plan that aligns with the organization’s strategic plan can improve both retention and organizational stability. This applied doctoral project presents case study in which three deliverables for succession planning, grounded in servant leadership, were produced for nursing leadership within a federal healthcare facility. A succession plan was built from the ground up through informant interviews, working group input, and feedback to determine essential leadership skills and tools to quantify needs for nursing leadership positions. A targeted presentation to key stakeholders on the resulting plan was delivered. Finally, using feedback from the stakeholder presentation, a succession planning toolkit was produced for use by other facilities.
