I'm still standing : from captive U.S. soldier to free citizen-- my journey home by Shoshana Johnson( Book )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 831 libraries worldwide
"In March of 2003, when Operation Iraqi Freedom was only days old, world headlines were made when a U.S. army convoy was attacked in the city of An-Nasiriyah en route to Baghdad. Several soldiers were killed and others were taken prisoner." "Jessica Lynch became the face and name associated with this tragedy, but another female soldier, Shoshana Johnson, was also wounded and captured in the ambush. A video of Shoshana being interrogated by her captors was soon broadcast on Spanish-language television and then picked up by American media. Shoshana had become the first black female prisoner of war in United States history. She was held for twenty-two days." "When Shoshana returned to the United States, she received numerous awards for her valor, including the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and Prisoner of War medals. She appeared on news networks and national television shows such as Oprah, Ellen, The Tonight Show, and Larry King Live, but she was bound by a military gag order. She was unable to discuss what really happened in Iraq - until now." "Shoshana holds nothing back in this harrowing account of an ordinary woman caught in an extraordinary circumstance. She reveals decisions made by higher-ups that may have led to the capture, describes the pain of post-traumatic stress disorder, and shares the surprising story of how a specialist in a maintenance company ended up on the front lines of war." "Divulging personal emotions and frustrations while raising fresh political issues, I'm Still Standing is the never-before-told and much anticipated story of the headline-making ambush, capture, and rescue described with the exceptional bravery and candor of a single mom and soldier who became an American hero."--Jacket

Personality traits found in a sample of nurse CEOs and CNOs utilizing the NEO Five-Factor Inventory 3 by M. L Doyle( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The institute of Medicine (IOM) has called upon nursing's three million-plus members to become healthcare leaders. With the IOM's call for the advancement of nursing leadership, it is important to examine the reasons why nurses remain underrepresented in top executive healthcare positions such as that of CEO. The hospital or health system CEO directs strategic planning that leads to the implementation of healthcare sevices, and impacts healthcare policy. Since personality affects individuals' attraction to and success in leadership through its impact on behavior and affect, it is important to consider personality characteristics as foundational to the development of succession planning practices. A knowledge gap regarding inherent qualities, such as the personality traits, was found to exist in current nursing leadership literature. Using a comparative descriptive survey design, this study examined personality traits of nurse CEOs and CNOs based on executive job title and gender. To answer four questions, two survey instruments were utilized to collect data for analysis. The NEO Five-Factor Inventory 3 (NEO-FFI-3) and a demographic survey were mailed to 427 nurse CEOs and 408 CNOs identified by the American Hospital Associations Resource Center. Data analysis was conducted using descriptive statistics, an independent samples t-test, and one-way Manova. Results revealed that the personality composition of nurse CEOs and CNOs is similar to that found in CEOs in corporate America, and that title alone had little effect on personality variance. Gender produced variance on the domain of Neuroticism, while gender and title combined created a variance on the domain of Openness. In addition, male CEOs in this study exhibited higher levels of Neuroticism than female CEOs. Demographic data revealed that nearly 60% of executive nursing leaders are at or near retirement age, suggesting a demand for aggressive succession planning. Additionally, a lack of ethnic diversity was revealed as well as an overrepresentation of males in nurse executives roles. It is hoped that these findings will stimulate similar nursing leadership research
