Since 2007 we have been working with nurse leaders to find out what you need to develop professionally and to make a difference in your nursing roles. Keep coming back to this page to find out about the work we are doing.
Clinical leadership programme
The clinical leadership programme (CLP) is a 12-month licensed programme designed to enhance productivity, quality and safety. The programme includes one-to-one coaching, 360-degree feedback and applied learning in the workplace. The programme is lead by a local facilitator who is fully supported through the RCN facilitator development programme which is 15 months and runs parallel to the clinical leadership programme. The programme is aimed at health and social care practitioners who lead and manage teams (Agenda for change bands 6-8).
The next facilitator programme will take place in November 2012. If you would like further information on the programme, how it can benefit your organisation, and how to apply, you can visit the CLP website, call 020 7647 3951 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Management and Leadership Forum - Keeping you up to date
The RCN has 35 professional forums. These are groups of RCN members working in a nursing specialty or with similar interests. Thousands of RCN members throughout the UK use forums to connect with each other, share ideas and achieve real change. Whether leading the way on a steering committee, or keeping up to date with important developments, forum members are at the cutting edge of the work of the RCN. As a nurse leader you can join the Nurses in Management and Leadership Forum for free. You can find out more information on the forums page, which includes information on how to join if you have not already done so.
