. Supporting Nursing and Nurse Leaders – a Provincial Interest Group’s Experience The Nursing Leadership Network of Ontario (NLN.ON) is an interest group of the Provincial Professional Association, the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario. It is the mission of NLN.ON to speak on behalf of and support nursing leaders and nursing leadership at all levels across all employment areas. This goal is increasingly challenging as the number of nursing leaders and nursing leadership positions are dwindling, having a lower profile or become an add-on role to operational positions. There has never been a more urgent time to keep nursing leadership and leaders visible and to support and mentor new and prospective leaders. This presentation will describe one strategy of the NLN.ON to bring nurse leaders together to share common concerns and realities and to propose workable solutions. Four regional leadership workshops have been held around the province during the last two years. These workshops bring nurses together in their own locale, allow them to network and jointly express their issues and validate their concerns on nursing leadership issues. This process has brought people together to share insights, brain storm and create workable solutions for their own diverse environments. The workshops are conducted in a unique manner that does not impose an agenda but permits the diversity of needs from across our province to have a voice. Feedback from these regional workshops has been very positive. Common themes have emerged suggesting the workshop process creates an environment of openness and trust where everyone’s views are important. Attendees go away with concrete ideas on how to address their leadership issues and they have a broader perspective on the issues facing nursing leadership in general. They learn they are not alone. Evaluation of the strategy and next steps to be taken will be shared.
