Leadership for Academic Nursing
AACN sponsors an executive leadership fellowship tailored specifically for aspiring and new deans. Designed to prepare a more diverse pool of leaders for nursing programs, this professional development experience encompasses an assessment and evaluation of leadership skills, opportunities for strategic networking and case study development, consultation to achieve long-term goals, and identification of key partnerships.
2017 LANP Program Application now open
The 2017 Leadership for Academic Nursing Program (LANP) will be held July 16-20, 2017 just outside Minneapolis, MN.
Applications must be received by AACN no later midnight (ET) on March 10, 2017 in order to be considered.
AACN held an informative webinar led by LANP program facilitators that provided insight into the application process and program content. This webinar provided recent LANP fellows an opportunity to discuss the impact the program has had on their leadership development.
Meet the Leadership Fellows
Fellows are selected to participate in this program through a competitive application process. Each year since 2002, a cohort of 40 Fellows has engaged in professional development activities, including an assessment of current leadership style and skills, mentoring opportunities with an experienced dean, and work to accomplish identified goals. Representing a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and skills, the AACN Fellows have developed the necessary tools to be leaders in the academic nursing world.
