Course Overview

Nurse leaders play one of the most pivotal roles in healthcare delivery as they directly impact both patient care delivery and the training of the next generation of health care providers. The IHP Program for Nurse Leaders: Raising Your Leadership Impact is designed for established and aspiring nurse leaders who want to have an even greater impact by advancing their leadership knowledge and skills. The goals of the program are to:

DEVELOP an individual and shared vision of leadership, leading teams, and leading within a system.

BUILD vibrant and synergistic learning community of nurse leaders from both academic and practice environments.

Throughout, participants will be exposed to leadership models and self-assessments, active dialogue about how effective teams are formed and sustained, methods for creating a culture of change based on responsive/responsible communication and strategic thinking, and opportunities to apply learning through identifying and implementing a change project/initiative in their home institution. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of their individual leadership presence and skills and how those skills help them reframe their environment to engage others. A certificate of completion will be awarded at the end of the program.


The 8-month program consists of three 2-day in-person workshops that are accompanied by online assignments and discussions. In addition to interactive, content and case-based learning, participants will realize growth through dedicated executive coaching, organizational mentorship, and a community of active problem-solving.

Participants will be asked to identify an organizational problem/opportunity they want to address as it will play a central role in their leadership development. Those who are interested can apply as individuals or with a colleague from their system to partner on the change initiative. 


At the end of the 8 months, participants will achieve the following goals:

FORMULATE one's own leadership vision based on values, ethics, leadership models, self as leader, and experiences.

APPLY behavioral skills in strengthening resilience and well-being for individual and team growth.

USE leadership skills to impact shared values, common purpose, diversity, and collaboration of teams.

EXPAND perspective of one’s relationship to a leadership team, the organization, and the system.

APPLY AND DISTINGUISH relevant communication practices in leading others and navigating challenging times.

APPLY tools in project development and implementation towards a project design and execution.


The framework of the program considers 3 inter-related dimensions of leading: self, teams & systems.

The program will draw upon leadership models, self, team and organizational development best practices, and the interprofessional collaboration competencies from the 2016 Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) as frameworks for selection of topics and active learning experiences.

The four competency domains of IPEC provide a foundation for development and achievement of program deliverables within the context of collaborative, team-based approaches to shared decision making and organizational effectiveness.
