Geneva, Switzerland, 2 March 2017- Applications for the new Global Nursing Policy Leadership Institute Programme (GNPLI) open today. This new International Council of Nurses’ (ICN) initiative was conceived in response to the changing needs of nurse leaders to support them in their efforts to shape and influence policy to meet growing global health challenges.
For the last eight years, ICN has worked to support and develop senior nurses from around the world at its acclaimed Global Nursing Leadership Institute. This year, ICN relaunches its Institute with an exciting contemporary focus on building the policy competences of senior nurses.
A significant development in ICN’s activities, the new Global Nursing Policy Leadership Institute (GNPLI) will welcome around 30 carefully selected participants from all six WHO regions in Geneva on 8-15 September 2017. They will share their experiences and develop their expertise, facilitated by top leadership and policy experts, and grow their networks. GNPLI will be held in the conference centre of the Château de Bossey near Geneva, Switzerland, a hub of multilateral diplomacy and humanitarian activity.
The innovative GNPLI programme focuses on the foundations of policy understanding: content, context, process, stakeholder analysis, coalition building, governance, problem definition and framing. It will enhance nurse leaders’ competence in negotiating at the highest levels with government officials, international and nongovernmental organizations as well as within their institutions. It will increase their capacity in advanced practice, management, education and research to work for better health outcomes and quality of care while safeguarding the safety, well-being and socio-economic interests of all health workers.
Applications for the Global Nursing Policy Leadership Institute Programme (GNPLI) open 2 March 2017 through 14 April 2017. To apply, please go to www.icn.ch
ICN has been a pioneer in leadership, management and negotiation skill development for nurses for more than 25 years, through the highly successful Leadership for Change™ (LFC) and Leadership in Negotiation (LIN) programmes. GNPLI is the third arm of ICN's leadership development strategy.
