Attend the 2022 Long-Term Care Nursing Leadership with our online, on-demand course offering.  The inperson for 2022 was cancelled.  We will try again for an in-person course in spring of 2023.  

The role of nursing leader within skilled nursing and assisted living settings requires specialized skills, knowledge, and mindset. This leadership course was designed to enhance nursing leadership confidence and competence by providing tools, overviews, and resources by content experts.

The purpose of this program is to meet the challenges of long-term care as they arise with strategies to excel during surveys using tested best practices. Apply a team approach to quality improvement that honors resident preferences and leverages staff skills. Protect your residents with risk-management plans that adhere to current compliance stands. Prevent burn-out and minimize facility turnover by promoting communication and participation. Comply with human resource regulations, laws, and challenges no matter the situation.

The WI DON Council has brought together individuals who are experts in the field. The Long-Term Care Leadership Course provides the base knowledge to manage and lead the three key concepts Nurse Leadership, Clinical Practice/Compliance, Budget Management.

Leadership: Leadership skills are essential to the successful management of staff, clinical situation, and system implementation.

 Clinical Practice/Compliance: Clinical skills are refined and mastered during this formal education process.

 Budget management: Fiscal responsibility is the only way each of our facilities can survive in the cost-conscious environment. This course will provide tools and knowledge concerning reimbursement, staffing, and supply/inventory costs.

Updates to the Long-Term Care Nursing Course include the addition of regulations related to the oversight of assisted living facilities. 

This workshop will complement your nursing expertise with leadership and management skills to help you discover your true potential.
This course is not offering a credential at this time.
