Program Outline

This program focuses on all leadership functions and is split into four pillars:

  1. Leading Self
    For nurse leaders, the task is now to not only keep pace as an individual but to guide and bring others along as well. It may seem counter-intuitive but the best place to begin being more effective in leading others is to start with self-awareness and insight.
  2. Leading Others
    Acquire nurse leadership skills that elevate the performance of others, including forming and engaging teams by setting clear goals and priorities, establishing a foundation of trust, and creating psychological safety.
  3. Leading Organization
    Nurse leadership requires a deeper understanding of how healthcare organizations function in areas ranging from strategic and financial management to organizational structure and regulatory compliance.
  4. Leading Change
    Nurse leaders are facing an evolving healthcare environment. It is now necessary to understand and lead through these disruptions in order to ignite, invite, and inspire change in individuals, teams, and organizations.
