Abstract:
PURPOSE: The purpose of Aspiring Nurse Leaders Week is to provide bedside clinicians an opportunity to further their leadership knowledge and abilities through educational offerings, presentations from tenured leaders, and recognition of current efforts. Ongoing development of clinical leaders allows the opportunity to expand expertise and grow professionally in an effort to retain clinical experts and leaders at the bedside. DESCRIPTION: Aspiring Nurse Leaders Week recognizes nurses who demonstrate clinical excellence and leadership. These individuals demonstrate the drive and desire to improve quality of care and their work environment while practicing at the bedside. This week-long event promotes ongoing professional development of these aspiring nurse leaders and recognizes their efforts. At the same time the occasion encourages others to develop their own leadership knowledge and abilities. Events of the week include a key note address from a tenured leader to inspire program participants as well as formal recognition of nurses in different clinical areas who consistently demonstrate quality and commitment to nursing excellence. Continuing education classes provided throughout the week include portfolio planning, review of available educational opportunities from local nursing institutions, how to prepare and present a professional nursing presentation, evidence-based management, and the introduction of a nursing research toolkit. Posters highlighting the various quality improvement and work environment improvement projects being completed in the different clinical areas are also prominently displayed for staff and visitors during the entire week. EVALUATION/OUTCOMES:The inaugural Aspiring Nurse Leaders Week was an opportunity to recognize and promote excellence in leadership. The concept was developed by the Professional Development Shared Governance Council to provide nursing staff opportunities to develop as professionals and leaders. All scheduled events were well attended and gave nurses an opportunity to be distinguished for their outstanding work. Aspiring Nurse Leader award winners received a scholarship for further education. The event also inspired others to become more involved within their own work environments in the future. Overall, the program was well received and the second annual event is scheduled for this fall.
