When the Director of Perioperative Services at a tertiary care hospital on the east coast accepted the Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) role, she received virtually no orientation with the outgoing CNO—and the stakes were high in this Level II trauma center. Strong and effective nurse leadership would be required for the organization to maintain its Leapfrog “A” grade.

Kirby Bates Associates designed a contemporary, intentional executive leadership development program focused on aspiring and current nurse leaders with three chief aims:

  • Accelerate the transition to an experienced and effective nurse executive
  • Provide the support and transferable knowledge required to reduce knowledge gaps
  • Achieve self-development goals and organizational imperatives
