Nursing Leadership Certificate Program
Registration is open for 2021-22 course
Nurse leaders in aging services settings must possess the leadership and operational skills to provide best in class care and effectively support their staff and residents. This year, when the COVID-19 pandemic has staff teams stretched to capacity, the need is even more urgent.
LeadingAge Minnesota’s Nurse Leadership Certificate Program is the premier training for nurses new or moving into an executive level position in skilled nursing care centers and assisted living home care to fully understand the scope and responsibilities of this essential leadership role and build the skills to be successful.
Building upon 30+ years of exceptional nursing leadership training, this program is intentionally designed for leaders in settings across the continuum to learn together and support one another. The virtual program features joint learning sessions for all nurse leaders and separate segments specific to the service setting. In fact, a key benefit of the program is building a network of trusted, supportive colleagues that help sustain one another throughout the immediate challenges of the pandemic, and throughout their careers.
This 11-day interactive virtual program is strategically scheduled over six months to maximize learning and provide timely supportive consultation. It combines lecture, discussion, experiential learning, self-assessment, independent assignments, research of issues and practices in small work groups and opportunities to interact with guest experts.
