Nursing Executive Center


About membership

Nurse executives lead their organization in shaping new strategies, transforming the clinical workforce, improving patient outcomes, delivering cost savings, and managing countless regulatory requirements. And they do this while navigating a host of new challenges like new customer demands, competitors, evaporating margins, high turnover, unprecedented stress, and workplace violence.

Our member CNOs tell us one of their biggest difficulties in overcoming these challenges is bridging the gap between strategy and execution. On one side, some try to just go it alone—and struggle to pick the right solutions for their organizations. On the other, cost-prohibitive consulting results in disenfranchised staff, unsustainable results, and low ROI. We fill the need in between by providing multiple levels of support backed by 40+ years of best practice research trusted by nursing leaders at 1,800+ health care organizations.

Find out how we help CNOs and nurse leaders drive strategy and get quicker results through customizable, vetted solutions.
