Our two professional tracks for 2019 are “Advancing” and “Emerging” Leader
The “Advancing” track focuses on experienced leaders. This track is engineered for nurse leaders expanding their strategic and program management. It is oriented for leaders responsible for developing other leaders and measuring organizational impact.
1. Making Big Changes: Aligning organizational change with strategic plans.

3. Impact: Measuring, evaluating and communicating success.
The “Emerging” track focuses on aspiring and growing nurse leaders who supervise, coordinate or manage care teams and projects while working closely with other leaders across organizations. The track is designed for nurse leaders that are launching their leadership careers or expanding within their current leadership roles.
1. Gaining Leverage: Making an impact while managing from the middle.
2. Effective Connections: Linking operations to strategy.
3. Personal Advancement: Nurse manager “personal development” topic.
