Driving Directions

Purpose: To provide nurse leaders with the knowledge and tools to think creatively and assume an active role in leading their organizations through the major change of implementing a new model of long-term care, the Household Model.
“Nursing” and “home” - a familiar pairing. But how do we reconcile one with the other to offer quality of care and quality of life? What is the role of the nurse leader in culture change? Will the work ever get done? To help nurses find answers and solutions, Action Pact is offering Nurse Leader training.


Expected Learner Outcome: 

• Knowledge: Participants will self-report benefiting from immersion site visits.
• Knowledge: Participants will self-report the intent to use what they have learned in their nursing practice.
• Knowledge: Participants will demonstrate knowledge gained by completing the Nurse Leader Intensive post-test and scoring 80% or greater.
• Skill: Demonstrate proficiency in the art of "Learning Circles” by Scoring 80% or greater on the Learning Circle review quiz and participating in all Learning Circles.


Target Audience: RNs, Directors of Nursing and other Nursing Leadership positions (nursing homes)


Content: Throughout the session, the presenters will address staffing, self-led teams, cross training, person-centered care, regulations, new skills and competencies for nurses in culture change homes. The training is designed for the nurse executive and nurse leaders in household, neighborhood and small house organizations. It can also be of great benefit to an executive team in the early design stages of determining how physical renovation and clinical care might merge to allow individuals to live a life of choice with support from staff.
