Abstract:
With continued growth in the geriatric population nationally and internationally, nurses need to be the leaders in practice, education, administration, research, and health care policy development/ implementation. As the older adult population grows, the number of geriatric advanced practice nurses is lagging behind. It is critical for Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), the second larges nursing organization in the world, collaborating with the Hartford Foundation, whose goal is to provide effective and affordable care to a rapidly increasing older population, to be at the forefront of preparing such nursing leaders.

With the completion of the first cohort of participants in STTI's Geriatric Nursing Leadership Academy (GNLA) in November, 2009, it is evident that this intensive 18 month mentored leadership program has made a positive impact on both individual leadership skill development and direct and indirect practice outcomes for the older adult population. This oral presentation will involve discussions on both of these integral components of the GNLA. Examples of the leadership journeys of some of the participants will be discussed from the perspective their skills development and evolution in their respective positions. Specific examples of practice, management/administration, and health care policy development/implementation outcomes at a micro/macro-level, as appropriate, will also be discussed and analyzed.
