Clinical Leadership Development Program

The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) created a clinical leadership development program targeted to the clinical nurse at the bedside.

This 10 lesson course informs clinical nurses of the need for leadership at the bedside, identifies the dimensions of clinical leadership, and highlights the competencies of the nurse leader at the bedside. The program is designed to motivate and empower clinical nurses at the bedside to become leaders in their practice environment.
