“Healthcare is always changing,” Clark said in the release. “And it is so important for nurses and nurse leaders to keep up with that change. Our knowledge of healthcare reform must be current, and we must be able to adjust the way we deliver care to our patients and ensure better patient outcomes.”
The free lecture, sponsored by Florida Blue, was part of the college’s Leadership in Practice lecture series. Attendees included nurses from the greater central Florida community, college faculty, students and alumni.
“Our Nursing Leadership in Practice lecture series coupled with the intensive seminar helps keep our DNP students abreast of key issues affecting healthcare,” said Susan Chase, ARNP, EdD, BC, FNP, associate dean for graduate affairs at the college of nursing, in the release. “Our goal with bringing together the three DNP tracks for these intensives is to bridge the gap between leadership and practice.
We want our nurse executives to better understand practice concerns because they are the ones developing the care environments in which clinicians practice. Also, we want our clinicians to better understand leadership issues because they are redesigning systems of care in both primary care and acute care settings.”
