NLN Leadership Institute Announces 2015 Cohorts

Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 22, 2014

The NLN’s 2015 Leadership Institute begins its year-long, professional development programs this month. Faculty have been selected through competitive application for LEAD, which focuses on nurse educators fast-tracked for administrative leadership roles within their academic institutions; and for the Leadership Development Program for Simulation Educators, featuring a curriculum uniquely devised for up-and-comers in that specialized area of nursing education.

Twenty nurse educators were chosen for the LEAD program directed by NLN chief program officer and director of the NLN Center for Transformational Leadership, Dr. Janice Brewington. Twenty simulation educators will work with Dr. Pamela Jeffries in Leadership Development for Simulation Educators. They will have their first face-to-face at the 2015 NLN Leadership Conference, February 5-7 in San Antonio, Texas.

Both programs require a significant time commitment, from January through December, to identify personal professional goals; learn about what makes an effective leader; and strategize how to re-tool skill sets and experiences to achieve individual benchmarks. To that end, everyone receives intensive one-on-one executive coaching, in addition to attending online and live group coaching sessions, conferences, and webinars, where they study leadership theory and development that includes case study review.

Said Marsha Adams, PhD, RN, CNE, FAAN, ANEF, NLN president and professor and dean of the College of Nursing at the University of Alabama in Huntsville: “We are indebted to both Galen College and the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future for their commitment to nurture leadership in nursing education. Because of their support, the League has expanded the capacity of the Leadership Institute’s programs and created a third track for senior deans and directors.”

“Each of the institute’s tracks share a dedication to cultivating excellence in nursing education,” noted NLN CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN. “Exposure to world-class faculty and dynamic curricula bring about lasting transformation in individual professional development and sustainable institutional change.”

To promote diversity among leaders in nursing education, at least 25 percent of program participants in LEAD have been selected from under-represented minorities. In addition, two key outcomes initially identified for the 2013 Leadership Institute’s LEAD program are expected to apply again in 2015: 90 percent of program participants commit to remaining in academic leadership positions following completion of the program, and second, that 80 percent pledge to expand the capacity of their schools’ nursing program, either by increasing enrollment of qualified applicants or improving retention of matriculated students.

Dedicated to excellence in nursing, the National League for Nursing is the premier organization for nurse faculty and leaders in nursing education. The NLN offers faculty development, networking opportunities, testing services, nursing research grants, and public policy initiatives to its more than 40,000 individual and more than 1,200 institutional members, comprising nursing education programs across the spectrum of higher education and health care organizations.
