Nurse LeadershipNurse and APN Leadership Track

Top-of-License Practice • Cross-Functional Collaboration • Population Health

As the single largest group of human capital, nurses have a tremendous impact on the quality and day-to-day cost of US health care and are potentially the most critical workforce in the shift to value-based care. As such, health care organizations must maximize their contributions.

The 3rd Annual Nurse and APN Leadership Track convenes leaders to discuss how provider organizations increasingly leverage these workforces for a more effective, efficient health care system. There is an imperative to remove barriers to top-of-license practice, and faculty share their solutions to improve management structures, culture, compensation issues, care delivery, and costs. In addition, explore AP and nurse potential to advance and foster a shared value of health between providers, health consumers, and the community.

Top Reasons to Attend:

  • Develop team-based models and collaborate better across professions to improve patient outcomes
  • Optimize the use of APs and enable top-of-license practice
  • Innovate nurse-patient interactions to enhance patient experience
  • Advance nurse-led models that address social needs and improve health for vulnerable populations
  • Examine case studies of successful AP programs
