Take Your Nursing Career to the Next Level

In 2015, nurse leaders throughout Arizona formed a search group to find the perfect leadership product that could prepare new nurse leaders and support seasoned nurse leaders. 
We are happy to announce our partnership with Capstone Leadership Solutions and the Arizona Nurses Association.


The academy has been designed to meet the needs of not only entry level but experienced nurse leaders. Competencies defined from the Arizona Nurse Leader Education Needs Assessment as well as those defined in AONE’s nurse manager skills inventory were used to design the content.  Since Communication & Relationship Building was identified as a most important leadership competency required for successfully leading individuals, teams, and organizations, Day 1 of each Summit will have a primary focus on these topics.
