Abstract:

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

Background:  The provision of quality safe care in the complex health care arena of the 21st century requires an integrated team approach across all care spectrums. In order to achieve this goal, the redesign of curricula to bridge the existing educational silos and facilitate positive team attitudes to educate multidisciplinary healthcare students together in a collaborative environment is paramount.  The focus of this project was to foster the leadership skills of an emerging nurse leader/administrator through the development of a multidisciplinary and multispecialty team model that improves team work, communication, and collaboration among healthcare students utilizing diverse expert faculty instruction, multilevel simulation, and debriefing.

Methods:  Through the Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy (NFLA) Scholar Program sponsored by Sigma Theta Tau International and Elsevier, this scholar  participated in a faculty guided leadership program and mentorship over an 18 month period to acquire and sharpen leadership skills in a new administrative position. Guided by Kouzes and Posner’s leadership practices, the development and implementation of a multidisciplinary IPE program was embedded into the curricula of seven multispecialty programs for health professionals.

Results:  The NFLA scholar created and executed an individual leadership plan to gain exposure to a myriad of leadership skills and styles to begin the journey as new nurse administrator.  Through creation and implementation IPE program, the NFLA scholar organized and led the Drexel University Partnership for IPE at Drexel’s College of Nursing and Health Professions and College of Medicine. The team members have presented the results of the IPE initiatives by completing 8 oral podium presentations, 4 peer referred publications, and 2 plenary sessions national and internationally.

Conclusions: The NFLA exposes emerging nurse leaders in academia to essential leadership skills and mentorship opportunities to develop individualized quality leadership styles and to positively promote change in nursing education and health care arenas.
