Veronica Amos, RN, PhD, MS, BSN, CRNA, assistant director of nurse anesthesia and assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Nursing in Baltimore, has been selected to participate in the 2014 National League for Nursing LEAD program. LEAD, a part of the NLN Leadership Institute, focuses on leadership development for nurse educators who are emerging into administrative leadership roles.
A yearlong program, LEAD teams participants with peers and experts to examine issues related to leadership concepts and organizational systems. The program guides participants in developing strong management and leadership skills, the art of negotiation and communication within groups and how to develop teams that perform at a high level.
The program also helps members create a five-year, focused career plan; examine key issues in organizational dynamics; and implement an individual plan for leadership development.
It is an honor and a privilege to be selected to the NLN LEAD Program for Nurse Educators, Amos said in a news release. I am so excited to be able to engage with other health professionals and learn to enhance my management and leadership skills. During this yearlong process, I look forward to examining leadership concepts and creating a focused career plan for my leadership development.
Comprised of nurse educators, education agencies, health care agencies and interested members of the public, the NLN is dedicated to excellence in nursing education. Its members are offered faculty development programs, networking opportunities, nursing research grants, testing and assessment and public policy initiatives.
