Who should attend

This program is for higher-level nurse-managers who are preparing for the role of chief nursing officer (CNO). Specifically, an individual attending this program must meet two of the three following criteria:

  • Reports directly to the CNO of the organization
  • Has multi-unit fiscal and management responsibilities
  • Manages direct reports who have supervisory responsibility

About the course

As nursing leaders advance within their organizations, the decisions, issues, and projects become increasingly complex and often occur across silos. Developing leadership skills is critical for this group to be effective leaders and patient advocates, especially as hospitals and health systems face new challenges to the way they deliver care and constraints on both time and resources.

Wharton Nursing Leaders Program addresses this complexity, from identifying the key stakeholders and influencing their behaviors to learning to manage resources and knowing when to terminate a task force or project. Small-group work enhances learning and applying the lessons from the classroom.

Experience & Impact

The importance of strategic leadership in a rapidly evolving health care setting, where limited resources and an evolving regulatory environment are creating new and more complex challenges, can’t be underestimated.

The program is designed to help you be a more effective nurse leader, providing tools to better manage resources, be more responsive to stakeholders, and optimize your nursing staff’s performance.

Wharton faculty apply their field-based research and latest practical insights to help you enhance your leadership in a health care setting. With satisfaction and quality measures growing in importance as reimbursements decrease, you need a laser focus on outcomes. Faculty content expertise and vast experience working with senior clinician executives will assist you in developing the essential analytical, financial, and leadership skills you need to provide a laser focus on outcomes.

Session topics include:

  • Planning for Execution
  • Financial Acumen
  • Critical Thinking
  • Change Management
  • Executive Presence
  • Influence, Persuasion, and Negotiation

Through highly interactive lectures, exercises, and case studies, both in the classroom and in smaller work groups, this program will give participants the business acumen, leadership, and critical thinking skills that will enhance their value as both a nursing leader and a hospital administrator.
