Engagement Through Education’s “Nursing Leadership Development Program” is a high quality leadership training for nurses and other care providers. Specifically, we teach those who work in assisted living communities how to be leaders.

Quality care for patients and residents begins with an effective training program. Indeed, when people are taught how to get the most out of their team, powerful results happen. At Engagement Through Education, we believe that a well-run nursing leadership development program impacts every aspect of your community.

— The Problem: You Are Just Too Busy

Nearly every director or manager we’ve ever worked with says the same thing. “I’m overwhelmed.”

For one thing, turnover in the industry is terrible. Some days, it feels like a revolving door and the fallout from that seems to land on you. First of all, you have to manage regulation or policy changes and communicate those to your team. Also, let’s not forget the daily conflicts, problems and crisis management you deal with. Then, add in the hours of paperwork and other “must be done now” tasks, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for overwhelm.

— Why a Nursing Leadership Development Program Is Critical For Your Success

Sure, most leaders in assisted living communities start their new roles with training on systems and policies. But nurses rarely receive proper training for how to effectively lead their team. If someone has performed well as a nurse, we automatically expect them to succeed as a leader. However, the trouble is the same skills that make you a great nurse can actually hinder your ability to lead.

For example, in nursing school, you learn to make sure you have the right answers. You pride yourself on being right. After all, once you start your career, a patient’s life is at stake. However, when you are a leader, you have to let others be right, too – at least from time to time. In addition, you have to create a workplace where employees feel comfortable sharing their opinions. Making this happen is just one skill that can be taught through our classes.
