Abstract:

Poster presented on: Sunday, November 17, 2013, Saturday, November 16, 2013

The changing healthcare landscape, the influx of baby boomers into the aging network, and the move toward increased community-based health care and interprofessional health-related services for older adults are creating challenges and opportunities for improving the health of our older population. Geriatric nurses prepared to operate as leaders in all settings, particularly community-based settings, will have an essential role in transforming our health care system. The Geriatric Nurse Leadership Academy (GNLA) sponsored by Sigma Theta Tau International, provides an excellent opportunity for community-based geriatric nurses to gain valuable leadership knowledge and skills.  The 18-month GNLA Fellowship provides participants the opportunity to build on existing skills and learn new leadership strategies that will have a significant impact on their personal leadership growth, their scope of influence within their community, and ultimately will impact the older adults they serve.  The GNLA utilizes a leadership model developed by James Kouzes and B. Posner titled, The Leadership Challenge: How to Make Extraordinary Things Happen in Organizations, to assist GNLA Fellows to move toward a higher level of leadership development.  This poster shares the outcomes of a GNLA Fellowship for one community-based nurse leader, including how the GNLA and the Kouzes & Posner Leadership Model impacted the Fellow’s organization, an Area Agency on Aging, as well as the local community and broader networks/organizations concerned about older adults.  The poster details the outcomes of the GNLA leadership project which focused on the formation of a community-based interprofessional caregiver coalition and the reach of this coalition into the community.
