Preparing New Preceptors for Success
Tuesday, May 14th, 2024, 8:30 AM-3:30 PM via Zoom
For current and aspiring clinical nursing preceptors

New Preceptors Workshop

Good nurse preceptors are a valuable asset for units and organizations. When preceptors are able to successfully deliver a good onboarding experience for new hires, they can directly impact retention, build trust within the nursing team, and elevate nursing practice.

Led by Dr. Crystal Lawson, this interactive virtual workshop is designed to expose new preceptors to the principles of adult learning theory and prepare them with tools to help newly hired nurses practice safely and feel welcomed. Participants will learn key strategies for giving feedback and practice skills that will help them effectively pass on their knowledge and promote safe practice.

Effective Communication Skills for a Healthier Work Culture

For nurse leaders at every stage of their leadership journey

Effective Communication Skills for a Healthier Work Culture

Ineffective communication is cited as the most common cause of medical error. It's critical for nurse leaders to hone their own communication skills and learn how to develop and foster good communication skills among members of their teams.

This interactive virtual workshop, led by Dr. Renee Thompson, is designed to equip and empower nurse leaders with the essential strategies and techniques needed to foster effective communication, which supports a safe and healthy workforce and helps them lead successful teams.

For nurse leaders at every stage of their leadership journey

ONL 2024 Annual Meeting

Join ONL for our 2024 Annual Meeting for a dynamic, interactive conference that will take a deep dive into some of the profession’s most vexing contemporary challenges and share ideas and strategies to help nurse leaders meet this moment and lead for the opportunities of tomorrow. Our distinguished speakers will share insights and expertise on the latest nursing workforce trends, take a closer look at what we know about newly licensed nurses and their transitions into practice, share data describing nurse manager span of control and ideas about re-scoping nurse manager positions for improved impact, and discuss strategic leadership to inform decisions about virtual nursing and evolving care models using a total care delivery perspective. Nurse leaders in all roles across both academic and practice settings including clinical leaders, nurse managers and directors, nursing executives, and others should attend to gain valuable perspectives and actionable strategies for leading nursing teams effectively in the face of change—now and in the rapidly evolving future.

Each session is designed to promote participant engagement and idea sharing between attendees and speakers.

We hope you will join us for this not-to-be-missed event to refresh, replenish, and renew your leadership practice while connecting and collaborating with fellow nurse leaders!

This highly-rated program offers fantastic foundational leadership training for nurse leaders newly in a leadership role.

Nurses are often promoted into leadership roles with little or no training in the leadership, management, and communication skills needed to succeed. This one-day, interactive workshop is designed to equip new leaders with the key skills and strategies needed 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.
