FAQs, Executive Nurse Leadership

Why pursue a course of study in Executive Nurse Leadership?

The sentinel report by the Institute of Medicine in 2010 on the future of nursing states “Health care organizations, including nursing associations and nursing schools, should also provide nurses greater opportunities to gain leadership skills and put them into practice. Nurses in turn need to recognize their responsibility and capability to contribute on management teams, boards, and other groups shaping health care.”

Graduates will be prepared to become certified in Executive Nursing Practice through the AONE after two years of executive nurse experience.
