In general, the goal is to provide CHC nurses with significantly increased knowledge of their own leadership style/strengths, knowledge of specific leadership and communication strategies, and increased skills in working with interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP) teams in CHC settings. The four days of the Institute will cover a range of leadership subjects and skills, and will be presented by expert faculty in a variety of teaching styles and presentation formats, including group activities, role playing, team exercises and more. 

Who should attend this course?

This course is for Community Health Center (CHC) nurses who have an associates, baccalaureate or graduate professional nursing degree.
