Exploring PHC's nursing leadership paths

May 11, 2018 | News

It’s Nursing Week, and we celebrate all nurses at PHC -- those at the point of care and those in leadership roles. There are many ways for nurses at PHC to grow as leaders, from Nurse Educator or Clinical Nurse Leader to Clinical Nurse Specialist, Patient Care Manager and beyond! If you are a nurse who’s interested in supporting your colleagues in best practice, having an impact on “bigger picture” issues, and advocating for excellence in clinical care, consider a leadership role.

You can train for the role by joining your Nursing Practice Council, tackling a QI or research project, attending graduate school and/or job-shadowing. The Clinical Leadership poster illustrates some of the attributes nurses need, and pathways nurses can follow to explore leadership roles.

PHC has a variety of programs and funds to support nurses seeking leadership opportunities, including the Educator Pathway, the Practice-Based Research Challenge, the QI Challenge, and bursaries to fund continuing education and professional development. PHC also offers support for nurses to participate in specialty education programs, including Critical Care, Emergency, Neonatal Care, Perinatal Care and Nephrology. Enrollment in the specialty education programs is coordinated by the Professional Practice Office in collaboration with the specialty areas.

Happy Nursing Week to all our wonderful, committed, compassionate nursing staff!
