Innovative Programs for Perioperative Leaders
The Nurse Executive Leadership seminars are innovative programs designed to help develop perioperative leaders. Walk away with new ideas, fresh perspectives and best practices you can apply in your own facility. Network with peers and gain skills that empower you to make a difference as a leader.
Perioperative nurse executives are encouraged to bring interdisciplinary colleagues (eg, administrators, department directors, surgeons, anesthesia providers) as you will be given strategies and tools to develop a collaborative action plan for your specific situation that can be implemented within the first 90 days after attendance.
