Overview - Professional nurses are often challenged to function as leaders in their workplace but lack the essential skills to effectively meet that challenge. This presentation will describe the design and outcomes of the Oncology Nursing Society's Leadership Development Institute (LDI) that provided over 150 nurses with yearlong mentored, action oriented fellowships. Significance – As key members of the interdisciplinary health care teams nurses are often placed in positions of leadership. Unfortunately the profession is ill prepared to successfully function in these leadership roles. The Oncology Nursing Society recognized the imperative to broaden the base of nursing leaders and to prepare nurses to lead in diverse, complex, health care environments. Consequently, the LDI was designed and conducted over a four-year period. The aims of the Institute included development of nursing leaders for the Society, other nursing organizations, and for the profession of nursing on community, state, national and international levels. Program –The LDI was developed to provide basic leadership competencies to nurses engaged in cancer nursing practice. LDI was conceived as a conduit to prepare nurse leaders of the future who would not only contribute to the transformation of cancer care but also provide a sustainable cadre of leaders for the society. LDI graduated four classes of fellows who each completed a yearlong program of didactic and experiential learning. Key to LDI success was the conduct of a leadership project and the creation of a personalized development plan. Fellows were assigned faculty coaches who provided guidance throughout the LDI. Outcomes – The outcomes of the LDI will review the impact of the institute on the leadership practices of the participants. In addition to presenting the leadership roles assumed by the participants after completing the LDI, the presentation will review the essential components of the program that contributed to the outcomes.
