Nurse Executive Leadership Seminars

Innovative Programs for Perioperative Leaders

The Nurse Executive Leadership seminars are innovative programs designed to help develop perioperative leaders. Walk away with new ideas, fresh perspectives and best practices you can apply in your own facility. Network with peers and gain skills that empower you to make a difference as a leader.

Perioperative nurse executives are encouraged to bring interdisciplinary colleagues (eg, administrators, department directors, surgeons, anesthesia providers) as you will be given strategies and tools to develop a collaborative action plan for your specific situation that can be implemented within the first 90 days after attendance.

What Are You Doing to Protect Your Nurses?

In all surgical practice settings, incivility and/or bullying are serious workplace concerns. The Fall 2016 seminar topic is "Bringing Shadow Behavior into the Light of Day: Understanding and Addressing Incivility and Bullying Behavior." All the details you need to know about the seminar and registration are included below.
