Abstract

While evidence strongly suggests that nursing leadership impacts nursing home care, most nursing home (NH) RN leaders have not had the benefit of a structured educational program that emphasizes the skills necessary to effectively lead in today's complex NH environment. The University of Missouri Leadership Development Academy for RNs in Long-Term Care was developed as an innovative educational program to prepare NH RNs to become effective leaders. Early data evaluating the leadership academy suggest that participation in a structured leadership program over an extended period of time may enhance the leadership behaviors of NH RNs.
