Leadership Development Program
The Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association has created a Palliative Nursing Leadership Development Program designed to offer advanced leadership programming to nursing professionals. Created in partnership with the association's Leadership Development Task Force, this program was made possible through grant funding from the Cambia Health Foundation secured by the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation. The program goals are to support nurses who wish to enhance their leadership skills, and to advance nurses into national leadership roles to serve as change agents to influence the future of palliative nursing care practice and policies.
This 18-month program will challenge participants to advance their leadership knowledge in service of a professional nursing practice issue. Participants in the program will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge, skills, and abilities related to leadership and the ability to influence systemic change. Through online learning, self-study and coached experiences, each participant will develop a network of colleagues dedicated to advancing the vision of HPNA to build a cadre of future leaders in hospice and palliative nursing.
We are looking for nurses from a wide range of backgrounds and work settings that include nurse clinicians, nurse researchers, nurse faculty.
