South Africa needs nurse leaders for the 21st century. Conventional leaders and leadership styles of the past are unable to meet the demands of the 21st century. This paper highlights the leadership qualities needed for preparing the new nurse leader of the 21st century in South Africa and on the continent, taking into consideration the values and norms enshrined in African culture. An extensive literature review on leadership and leadership theories was undertaken. It is from these sources that the paper identifies the qualities that should characterise the new leadership style that will prepare African leaders to move in a whole new direction in this century.
