Developing leaders in professional nursing organizations is essential to the sustainability of the organization, yet recruiting volunteer leaders is a challenge. In addition to multiple demands on personal time, many members believe they do not have the experience to serve in leadership positions. As professional organizations mature, they must develop approaches to recruiting and preparing younger members to lead. In 1997, the Oncology Nursing Society made a commitment to the members for leadership development, thus ensuring effective succession planning for local and national voluntary leadership positions. A faculty team developed a year-long fellowship program, including an intensive curriculum based on the leadership framework of James Kouzes and Barry Posner. The fellowship included two national sessions, a local project designed by the fellow, and distance-based support by the core faculty. The first class of fifty fellows was accepted in 1998. This presentation will include: 1) an overview of the program, including how the Kouzes and Posner framework is used, 2) a discussion of how the program’s effectiveness is evaluated and review of data that has been collected, 2) a description of the four classes that have graduated and the recruitment initiatives that ensured a inclusive and representative membership, and 3) a review of additional leadership development activities that have resulted from the fellowship.
