Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses

20 nurses and midwives have been enrolled in the leadership development programme.

AMSN has developed a year-long leadership development program for 20 nurses aged 35 and under. This program provides an examination of leader-follower partnerships in diverse healthcare settings. Theories, research findings, and expert opinions from several fields of study are used to explore the related concepts of power, authority, influence, leadership, followership, decisional involvement, structural empowerment, and emotional intelligence in the context of complex healthcare work environments. Special emphasis is placed on the use of effective leadership and followership behaviors to sustain high performing healthcare teams and improve quality outcomes for patients, families, and healthcare organizations
