HPNA Year of Leadership 2021

HPNA is committed to supporting the professional development needs of our members, as leaders in the field of hospice and palliative nursing. As part of those efforts, we are launching the HPNA Year of Leadership 2021, which has been made possible through remaining grant funds from the Cambia Health Foundation.  

The HPNA Year of Leadership 2021 will provide multiple opportunities to help you develop your individual leadership skills and reach advanced career goals. The track will include:

  • A mentorship program facilitated thorough the new HPNA Community
  • Leadership-specific webinars, podcasts, and Nursing Resource Guides (NRGs)
  • Annual national preconference and/or mini conferences dedicated specifically to leadership topics
  • Office hours for members to discuss leadership needs with subject matter experts, as well as additional leadership-specific educational offerings
  • Three new POLARIS modules on leadership
  • Four annual scholarships to nationally recognized nursing leadership programs

Leadership Office Hours

Office Hour live Q&A sessions are a member benefit. You must be logged into your HPNA account to access registration. Registration is required. 

Did you know that all nurses are leaders regardless of their job title? Have you recently graduated from a nursing bachelor's, master's, DNP, or PhD program? Are you interested in learning more about leadership? Are you ready to take the next step in your career but aren't quite sure of the direction? HPNA is here to help answer some of these questions with a series of one-hour monthly leadership office hours. During these office hours, national leaders in hospice and palliative care will take your leadership questions. These sessions are not just for established leaders. They are for any hospice and palliative care nurse who wants to build their leadership skills.
