The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International’s (STTI’s) Geriatric Nursing Leadership Academy (GNLA) has become the premier leadership development opportunity for nurses dedicated to improving the care of older adults.
Since its inception in 2008, the GNLA’s 28 fellows have impacted more than 20,000 patients, nursing students, LPNs/VPNs and direct-care workers across 20 states.
Thanks to a US $136,035 grant from The Retirement Research Foundation (RRF), awarded to the Sigma Theta Tau International Foundation for Nursing, STTI will host a GNLA Midwest cohort in 2012-2013.
“We are incredibly grateful to RRF for their generosity. We value their partnership and look forward to the collaboration. We are committed to increasing the knowledge of nurses working with older adults across the United States,” says STTI President Suzanne Prevost, PhD, RN, COI.
A call for applicants is anticipated for February 2012. The 18-month GNLA is a mentored leadership experience. Each fellow will select an expert mentor who will participate in the GNLA workshops and guide them through the leadership development journey. The blended curriculum provides a multitude of methodologies for developing leadership knowledge and competence focusing on:
+ Individual leadership development;
+ Advancing nursing practice through leadership of an interprofessional team; and
+ Organizational scope of influence and impact.
