The NPD Leadership Academy is a 12-month mentored program based on the content of Leadership in Nursing Professional Development: An Organization and System Focus, (2nd ed.). (Harper, 2022). 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 required to submit abstracts to share their initiative outcomes at the ANPD annual convention.
