The Nuts and Bolts of Nursing Leadership
Tuesday, Oct. 4th, 8:30 AM-3:30 PM via Zoom For Nurse Managers & Directors
Tuesday, Oct. 11th, 8:30 AM-3:30 PM via Zoom For Charge Nurses & Emerging Leaders

Nuts and Bolts of Nursing Leadership

Nurses are often promoted into leadership roles with little or no understanding of the leadership, management, and communication skills needed to succeed. This one-day, interactive workshop is designed to assist new leaders with key skills and strategies necessary to be successful: transitioning into a leadership role; communication and collaboration, including power and authority; resource management; and managing staff performance.

This workshop is offered on two different dates, with each date's program customized to bring focus and examples that are designed for the specified target audience.

Leading Evidence-Based Practice
Wednesday, Nov. 16th, Thursday, Nov. 17th & Friday, Dec. 2nd, 9:00 AM-3:00 PM via Zoom
For nurse leaders at every stage of their leadership journey

Leading Evidence-Based Practice

Although it is widely known that evidence-based practice (EBP) improves healthcare quality, reliability, and patient outcomes as well as reduces variations in care and costs, it is still not the standard of care delivered by practicing clinicians. Nurses and nurse leaders need a deep and operational knowledge of EBP to access and implement proven strategies, while also improving quality and engagement.

In collaboration with the Fuld Institute for Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) at The Ohio State University, ONL is excited to provide this highly-rated leadership development program.
