2024 Virtual Nurse Leadership Program

Thursdays, 12:00-2:00pm

Registration is now closed. If you are still interested in participating, please email Lynn Monaghan at lmonaghan@leadingagewa.org.


“High Administrator and Director of Nursing turnover land providers more complaint investigations” according to an article published in an issue of McKnights addressing research results in a study by Miami University in Ohio.

“Staffing retention matters just as much at the top of the managerial chain as it does for frontline staff.” Retaining your Nursing Leadership and Administrator is likely to result in fewer consumer complaints and fewer substantiated complaints.  Nursing Homes with high leadership turnover are more likely to be in the group of facilities with 6 or more substantiated complaints.  Not only were the complaints made but they resulted in actual deficiencies in care.

Leadership instability has been found to be significantly associated with high turnover of frontline staff which influences overall quality of care according to a recent JAMDA study. 

Do you want to avoid complaint investigations?  Do you have new nurse leaders on your team?  Do you want to solidify collaboration and cohesion among your nurse leaders?

Consider having your Leadership Team participate in this upcoming 5-month intensive live Virtual training.  The Program consists of a weekly Zoom meeting lasting 2 hours where leadership staff will meet with the Program Facilitator for Education and Consultation.  Sessions will be recorded and available to participants to review during the 5-month period.
