November 19, 2020
Vizient has been committed to clinical excellence and recognizes the pivotal role nurse leaders play in assuring quality of care. Because developing nursing leaders is an industry-wide imperative, Vizient makes this series available nationwide to all networks hospitals.  Nursing leaders need education and information to help them in their management role. Additionally, this educational tool can be utilized as an opportunity for executive nurse leaders to cascade these offerings throughout their leadership team. Truly making Vizient a partner in developing their leadership team.
This three-part series is designed to address their most pressing needs based on extensive surveys and audience feedback.  In 2020, the series focuses on needs related to building resilience in individuals to build effective teams, nurse leader emotional intelligence, effective nursing leadership structures and leading models of care to address the needs of the chronic care population.  Furthermore, we support this series with adjunct program offerings on high interest topics as they arise throughout the year in the form of webinars outside of the three planned programs, via trending topic webinars. This enables Vizient to remain nimble in our offerings and be seen as a thought leader on the cutting edge of industry trends.
