Nurses Lead, nurse leadership development program

To meet the increasing need for nurse leaders, the Rhode Island Action Coalition has developed the Nurses Lead, nurse leadership development program for Registered Nurses looking to take their leadership to the next level.  The program will offer participants a crash course for serving on boards and the skills needed to succeed.  Following the half-day crash course seminar participants will be matched with a nurse leader mentor to coach them as they seek their first board position. To register for this half-day seminar plus mentor program, complete the nomination survey above.

Leveraging Nursing Leadership

Building leadership skills and knowledge in individual nurses and the profession will prepare nurses to seek opportunities to use those skills in partnerships on health care teams and in efforts that improve the delivery of care.

The evolving health care delivery system requires that nurses be full partners with physicians and other health professionals. In delivering increased patient-centered care, all nurses, from students, to bedside, to chief nursing officers, and in academia must act as leaders.

For 11 consecutive years, Americans have ranked nursing as the most trusted profession.  Nurses are the largest sector of health care professionals, yet are viewed as having the least influence on health policy. The campaign understands that communicating the value of nursing leadership, and forging relationships are critical to providing opportunities. We are collaborating with state, national, and federal entities to further our initiatives. Specifically, the campaign is  developing a leadership learning collaborative that facilitates sharing between all states working on leadership; engaging stakeholders to promote nurse leaders; identifying and showcasing nurse-led interprofessional collaboration models in practice that provide nurses with the opportunity to lead change; and engaging diverse nurses and student nurse leaders in the campaign leadership work.
