The demand for leadership from professional nurses working in long term
care homes extends beyond clinical and care practices to include broader
organizational issues. The Excelling as a Nurse Leader in Long Term Care
Certificate Program addresses these challenges. This new and unique
program works with RNs and RPNs and their organizations to overcome gaps
in nurses’ leadership skills. By building on existing strengths,
the program assists the professional nurse in the acquisition and
practice of new skills required of the complete nurse leader, such as
empowering staff, holding people accountable, assertively communicating,
and collaboratively problem solving.
The Excelling as a Nurse Leader in Long Term Care Certificate Program is
designed from an adult-learning perspective. Participants are
provided a supportive environment to experiment with leadership
concepts, emerging from the program with a renewed commitment to the
changing role of the nurse leader in long term care.
