We’re excited to announce that our new Clinical Nursing Leadership eLearning modules that were released in October are now accredited by the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA). These modules have been through a rigorous quality assessment and have achieved nationwide recognition.
Nurses are often required to manage conflict and communicate in a variety of contexts with co-workers, residents, other team members and their friends and families. This new accredited course will enhance the clinical leadership skills of nurses working in long-term care. The modules include realistic scenarios and scenario-based practice to help nurses navigate conflict, communicate with confidence, and learn how to thrive as clinical leaders. In addition to this, the modules also feature:
- Accessibility compliant
- Online format for individual learning
- Short (20 minutes each – 60 minutes total)
- Learning management system (LMS) format for organization integration
And cover the following topics:
- Communicating Effectively
- Handling Conflict with Care
- Being a Leader
Clinical leadership is a core competence of nurses’ profession and is critical in providing quality and safe clinical care. It requires clinical knowledge and experience with elements of general leadership such as effective communication, providing feedback, conflict management, etc. While long-term care nurses receive leadership training as part of their education, the amount of time spent on it and at what stage of the base training is uneven between different nursing programs and what is covered is largely theoretical, with less focus on applying skills on the job. As a result, many nurses are not prepared for or comfortable with the degree of leadership that’s required of them in LTC.
