The NPD Leadership Academy is a 12-month mentored program based on the content of Leadership in Nursing Professional Development: An Organizational and System Focus (Smith & Harper, 2016). The purpose of the Academy is to prepare NPD practitioners to assume leadership of a NPD department in a variety of settings. The Academy consists of a live face-to-face pre-convention workshop followed by live webinars throughout the year for each section of the text. Participants complete relevant, asynchronous assignments between webinars. In addition, one overall work-based leadership project is completed over the course of the year. Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts to share their project outcomes at the ANPD annual convention.
Applications for the 2019-2020 Leadership Academy are open until Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 11:59 Central Time. Click the link below to apply:
