2022 Stronger - PH314 - Investing in Our Future: Nurse Leadership Development and Succession Planning - On Demand

This session features a panel of nurse leaders who will share insights on how to successfully develop strong and resilient nurse leaders for the future.

Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center created a nurse leadership development program that provides charge nurses with the additional leadership education, support and experience needed to transition into anticipated future leadership vacancies within the organization. The outcome of this evidence-based approach is to grow nurses into competent and confident leaders. 

At NYU Langone Medical Center, succession planning is a critical component in nurse leadership development, ensuring that key roles remain filled with competent leaders in alignment with the mission, vision and values of the organization. One strategy, the Nursing Leadership Bench Strength Project, is specifically designed to create and develop a pipeline of future nurse leaders. This succession strategy was developed collaboratively through a doctor of nursing practice (DNP) and PhD partnership at an academic medical center within an integrated health system.

Join us to learn how the panelists are developing and securing a robust pipeline of future nurse leaders.
