As one of ONS’s four strategic pillars, leadership is a key area of focus for the association. ONS is committed to providing programming and services that give healthcare providers the skills and expertise they need to become strong leaders in their institutions, communities, and profession.
This intensive 8-week webcourse is designed to provide both theoretical information and practical guidance to nurses interested in expanding their knowledge and skills related to leadership. Encompassing a diversity of ages, experience levels, learning styles and interests, the course offers tools necessary to build upon the competencies of a leader.
Students will work in tandem with a mentor, network through discussions with fellow participants and faculty, complete comprehensive self-assessments, and learn through multiple formats including audio, video, and interactive activities. Course participants will learn how to apply principles and theories of leadership to their nursing practice and about communication, teamwork, change theory, professional issues, and much, much more.
The unique format of this course requires students to apply content directly into their professional practice or work setting. It is the intent of the course to stimulate thought, creativity, and sharing, while participants communicate what they’ve learned with their colleagues. This is NOT a course to take “just for the CNE,” but a course to help you move toward your future.
This program was made possible through the financial support of the ONS Foundation.
