Leadership in nursing in general, and specifically leadership that serves as a bridge between clinical practice and administration, is a pivotal topic during times of global shifts in disease and in health care.
Join us from November 5 - 9 for this virtual panel discussion to address questions on what leadership means in nursing, whether nurse leadership can be taught, and how nurse leadership can impact health systems.
Our panelists include:
* Inge Corless, RN, PHD FAAN, Professor in the Graduate Program in Nursing at the MGH Institute of Health Professions.
* Patrice Nicholas, DNSc, RN, ANP, FAAN, Professor at the MGH Institute of Health Professions and Director of Global Health and Academic Partnerships at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in the Division of Global Health Equity and in the Center for Nursing Excellence.
* Gini Williams, leader of the International Council of Nurses’ TB project
* Angela McBride, Distinguished Professor and University Dean Emerita at Indiana University School of Nursing
Please join our panel in discussing the following key questions:
* What does it mean to be a nurse-leader, or to exhibit leadership in nursing? Would this idea of leadership in nursing vary between low/middle income countries and high-income countries?
* Is leadership in clinical/bedside nursing different from leadership in nurse management/administration?
* How are health care systems affected by either the presence of absence of nurse-leaders? How might health care systems be different if there was more leadership in nursing?
* Why does it seem there is greater focus on nurses being leaders in their profession, rather than pharmacist-leaders, physician-leaders, dentist-leaders, etc? Is there a dearth of nurse-leaders, or does the field of nursing somehow require a greater demonstration of leadership?
* How does one teach leadership? If a student does not come to nursing already possessing qualities of leadership, how can this be developed over the course of her/his nursing education? And how does one continue to develop leadership skills in nursing after graduation?
As always, we look forward to hearing your thoughts during this Expert Panel!
