Clinical Leadership Series


Nurses use many skills on a daily basis. Nurses who have been medical-surgical nurses for any length of time know how important leadership skills are both as team members and as managers. AMSN directed the Clinical Leadership Task Force to create education to help medical-surgical nurses develop and implement leadership skills on their units. Continuing leadership education serves to benefit all working on the medical-surgical unit as well as their patients. The three modules are designed around the Team Building theme and include Relationships, Delegation, and Meetings. These modules are intended to help our members stay current in leadership theory and continue to develop skills that will keep them on the cutting edge of the nursing profession.
