Abstract

Envision a better future…

Be prepared to lead the way to better outcomes…for your patients, your team, your institution, and yourself. You’ll not only learn about leadership, but also how to use your skills to manage staff, implement policy changes, and to develop systems that deliver cost effective, quality-controlled care. The coverage encompasses the competencies required by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing in conjunction with major specialty nursing organizations.

You’ll begin with the theories, models, and frameworks that provide the window through which to view leadership in the context of the regulations and standards that guide the delivery of care. Then, you’ll explore the importance of creating a culture that ensures safe, quality care, and learn how to plan and evaluate programs to affect change.
