Nursing Leadership Academy

Today's healthcare environment has never been more challenging, uncertain, stressful, and dynamic. Massive transformational shifts seem to be taking place across the nation, impacting health care and nurses in ways we cannot even now fully realize. According to the Institute of Medicine, strong nursing leadership is critical if the vision of a transformed health care system is to be realized. Though not all nurses begin their career with thoughts of becoming a leader, all nurses need to lead.
