BSN YOUNG LEADERS PROGRAM
Applications for the 2020 BSN Young Leaders Program NOW OPEN!
The Young Leaders program will provide the BSN student the opportunity to explore the leadership role of the Registered Nurse, in a selected setting, under the mentorship of a nurse leader. This program will integrate concepts from Quality Safety Education in Nursing and the landmark Institute of Medicine (IOM) report: The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.
This nursing leadership experience is being offered to student nurses in their junior or senior year of a baccalaureate program and will provide opportunities to explore various aspects of leadership in nursing. These experiences will go outside the classroom, beyond the bedside, and offer chances to work with nurse researchers, educators, clinicians and/or leaders. Upon the successful completion of the Young Leaders Program, students will receive a $1,000 stipend to be spent toward their educational expenses.
