Are you a registered nurse working in health and social care? This online programme for aspiring leaders within the nursing profession explores how you lead yourself and others while navigating the increasing demands, competing priorities and the growing expectations of the registered nurse role.

The Developing Leadership Programme provides the time and space to explore your leadership style, your aspirations as a leader and how to promote a team approach that is inclusive, vibrant and supported by continuous learning.

This unique programme has been developed for nursing staff at band/level five or equivalent, and is suited for both the NHS, independent sector and social care organisations.

This programme will be delivered virtually over two days, separated by two weeks to encourage reflection during the programme. The date for Day 2 of this programme is 17th November 2021. You must be available to attend both dates to book onto the course. Each day will run from 9.00am-16.00pm.
