The Alliance for Nursing Informatics (ANI) is a collaboration of organizations that represent a unified voice for nursing informatics. One of ANI's objectives is to identify leadership, provide mentorship, and encourage nursing informatics participation in national nursing informatics activities. The ANI Nursing Informatics Emerging Leaders Program enhances the leadership skills and competencies of individuals in the following areas:
- Communication and networking
- Strategic planning
- Negotiation and persuasion
- Leading and managing change
The program identifies and develops emerging leaders in nursing informatics and involves them in a 2-year program to learn about their own leadership potential, identify opportunities for professional growth, and gain knowledge and experience necessary to serve nursing informatics practice and/or policy. The ultimate goal of the program is to develop an individual capable of leading an informatics-related organization.
ANI will select two individuals to participate in the program. Components of the program include attending the ANI governing director meetings, participating at the AMIA Annual Symposium and the HIMSS conference, and completing a leadership project. The selected individuals are paired with a mentor for dialogue and coaching during the 2-year program. Mentors are selected by a sub-set of the ANI governing directors based on the proposed leadership project and will provide feedback and guidance throughout the program.
The application deadline for this program is October 30, 2017. Completed applications should be sent by e-mail to Karen Greenwood (email@example.com). Applications will be reviewed in November and December, and applicants will be notified of program status in January 2018.
