Nurse leaders play one of the most pivotal roles in healthcare delivery as they directly impact both patient care delivery and the training of the next generation of health care providers. The IHP Program for Nurse Leaders: Raising Your Leadership Impact is designed for nurse leaders aspiring to grow their leadership practice for an even greater impact on individuals, teams, and organization. The goals of the program are to:

  • DEVELOP your own vision of leadership related to self, team, and leading within an organization or a system.
  • BUILD a personal action plan that will travel with you after completing the program as you continue your journey as a leader.

Throughout, participants will be exposed to leadership models and self-assessments, active dialogue about building effective teams, methods for creating a culture of change based on responsive/responsible communication and strategic thinking, and opportunities to reflect on and discuss application of learning through a community of learners and executive coaches. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of their individual leadership presence and skills and how those skills help them reframe their environment to engage others. A certificate of completion will be awarded at the end of the program.

In support of improving patient care, MGH Institute of Health Professions is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

This activity is designated for 40.0 contact hours for nurses.


The framework of the program considers three inter-related dimensions of leading: self, teams & systems.

The program will draw upon leadership models, self, team and organizational development best practices, and the interprofessional collaboration competencies from the 2016 Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) as frameworks for selection of topics and active learning experiences.

The four competency domains of IPEC provide a foundation for development and achievement of program deliverables within the context of collaborative, team-based approaches to shared decision making and organizational effectiveness.
