Summer School of Nursing Work and Clinical Leadership
Course objectives & General description
Healthcare organizations are difficult to manage. Different logics and value systems are at play. Leadership and management is of importance when aiming on ensuring high quality patient care, employee satisfaction and overall organizational effectiveness . This is particularly so for front line nurse managers; they are the key interface between care, cure and managerial control as they are “close to the action”. At most nursing schools leadership and management are not in the core of the curriculum. This is understandable, the main focus is on training nurses, not managers or leaders. Nevertheless we believe that addressing management and leadership in an early phase of your professional career as a (student) nurse helps creating better healthcare organizations and improve the quality of care of our patients.
You will work closely together with other nurse students from different countries on topics such as (clinical) leadership, professionalization, having influence in daily practice, intercultural nursing, management of complex organizations, process management etc.
