Hospitals are asking nurse leaders to help shape new strategies, transform the clinical workforce, and improve outcomes—all while dealing with greater margin pressure, rising care complexity, a changing nursing workforce, and a growing list of nursing-sensitive measures tied to reimbursement.
For nearly 20 years, the Nursing Executive Center has helped nurse leaders, from the CNO to the frontline manager, address challenges just like these. Whether you work at a community hospital, academic medical center, pediatric hospital, or a large health system—we have resources that can help.
Our team of dedicated nursing experts work with leaders like you across the globe every day. We identify pressing issues and distill proven best practices. Then, we help you decide which solutions are best for your organization and provide the implementation tools to get you there.
Whether you prefer reading, listening, or meeting face-to-face, with membership you’ll get updates and insights from our team of experts, as well as opportunities to network with fellow nursing leaders addressing the same issues.
Browse our research library of hundreds of proven best practices from organizations across the country—and the globe. Our research addresses topics ranging from quality and clinical standardization to nurse engagement to manager skill development.
