Nursing Leadership Program

Mills’ Nursing Leadership Program (NLP) builds on students’ coursework by introducing students to the skills and knowledge they need to exercise leadership in professional nursing practice.  The NLP is based on research that demonstrates the strong relationship between leadership characteristics and nursing career retention.

Nursing Leadership Program components include:

  • A weekly Nursing Leadership Seminar that can be taken for academic credit all four semesters students are in residence at Mills (link to course information on right).  Readings, discussions and written assignments explore the relationship between nursing and leadership.
  • Presentations by recognized nursing leaders representing all aspects of nursing – from bedside practice to administration to teaching faculty.  Topics include featured nursing specializations and career tracks, nursing history, healthcare advocacy, and emerging issues in the field. 
  • Hands-on interactive workshops focus on skills development, covering such topics as cultural literacy, conflict resolution, and professionalism.  Students are given opportunities to assess their own capacity for leadership and identify areas of development.    
  • Experiential learning through job shadowing, internships, campus volunteerism, and service learning.
  • Special events and field trips.   

NLP also collaborates with other programs and offices on campus to offer leadership initiatives open to all students.
