Arizona Nurse Leader Academy

Take Your Nursing Career to the Next Level

The academy has been designed to meet the needs of not only entry level but experienced nurse leaders. Competencies defined from the Arizona Nurse Leader Education Needs Assessment as well as those defined in AONE’s nurse manager skills inventory were used to design the content.  Since Communication & Relationship Building was identified as a most important leadership competency required for successfully leading individuals, teams, and organizations, Day 1 of each Summit will have a primary focus on these topics.

Nursing continuing education contact hours are provided.  Summit I for 13.16 hours and Summit II for 14.5 hours. 

The Western Multi-State Division is an accredited provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Utah Nurses Associations are members of the Western Multi-State Division of the American Nurses Association.
