Abstract: The health care delivery system is an ever evolving system that requires essential skills for qualified personnels (Walker et al.2011). Thus, the leaders should understand the appropriate concept of leadership practices and approaches required to achieve the goal of the organization (Northouse 2013). This can be ascribed to nursing education in Nigeria such as Ebonyi State University. The transition of nursing education from hospital based to university in Nigeria has to the establishment of the department. However, the department of nursing in the University has experienced sort of setback due to lack of transformational leadership style. Therefore, transformational leader is needed to propel the department to achieve its educational and professional objectives. This is aimed to build human capacity that will support to achieve the current reform that is going on in nursing education in Nigeria.
