8-week DNS Training Program
Spring 2013 Description
Nursing facilities provide quality, sophisticated medical care to diverse populations including rehab and sub-acute patients, long term care residents and those requiring specialty care. At the core of this care is nursing services, a job that requires dynamic leadership skills and the ability to motivate others to achieve exceptional results. Nurses must also be familiar with the latest changes in clinical care delivery and regulations and be able to manage a multi-disciplinary team model that delivers the highest quality of care and quality of life to the individuals they serve. The Massachusetts Senior Care Association, in collaboration with Boston University School of Public Health, has developed an 8-week workshop that provides an opportunity to learn new skills, fine-tune existing knowledge, explore values-based leadership, and operationalize the skills and competencies that are needed to be a nurse leader in senior care.
This program is geared for registered nurses who may be transitioning into the role of Director of Nursing in the long term care or sub-acute setting and for those practicing nurses considering future career development.
