Lessons in Leadership:The Betty Irene Moore Speaker Series
We are proud to be connected with this series featuring nationally-recognized nurse leaders whose leadership spans nursing, health care, government and other sectors. The collection includes 12 individual videos, each focused on one leader, plus a compilation video highlighting all 12. In each, leaders reflect on the lessons learned and strategies that shaped their successes and leadership roles. The leaders include numerous recipients of “Living Legend” awards; faculty members from top universities; CEOs, executive directors and board members of the nation’s leading health care organizations; and prominent policy advisers.
We are pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Moore Foundation to bring one of these nurse leaders to New Mexico!
Linda Aiken, PhD, FAAN, FRCN, RN will join us on Friday, April 1st.
