For more than a decade, the Leadership Academy Fellows Program has prepared NYSNA members to assume positions of influence within their professional association. Viewed as the “passageway into distinction of nursing leadership,” many graduates of the program have served on the NYSNA Board of Directors, the ANA House of Delegates, executive committees of local bargaining units, the Delegate Assembly, council offices, and district nurses associations’ boards and committees.
The Leadership Academy is an excellent opportunity to increase and enhance the leadership skills expected of today’s professional nurse. Increasingly, members are asked to take on leadership roles in their work settings, at NYSNA, and in their communities. This program helps prepare nurses to assume those leadership roles.
Applications for the Leadership Academy Program are accepted from January 1 through April 30 of each year. If you would like more information about the program, please contact Betsy Herlihy in Nursing Education and Practice at 518.782.9400 ext. 282.
