The Leadership Training Program (LTP) is a blended learning approach where participants engage in a rigorous six-week program delivered via a web-based platform and facilitated by the NICHE team. Offered several times a year, the program includes interactive conference calls, live and recorded webinars, mentoring by NICHE faculty, on-demand access to tools, benchmarking, guides for implementation, and much more. Register today for the NICHE Leadership Training Program.
Each individual hospital must register a core team for the Leadership Training Program. Multiple hospitals within systems must register a core team for each individual hospital. Please refer to NICHE Designation Process for more information.
Participants engage in a rigorous six-week program delivered via a web-based platform and facilitated by the NICHE team. The designated NICHE coordinator at each hospital receives tools to plan and prepare how the course will be delivered over the six-week period. All the tools and resources are provided to participants.
The LTP will give your team the opportunity to:
At a minimum: three people responsible for steering the initiative: a nurse clinician leader, a clinical educator, and an administrator or manager.
Recommended: in addition to above, direct care staff and other disciplines (medical, rehab, social work, pharmacy, etc.).
The cost of the Leadership Training Program for new sites is $4,950 per hospital, which covers the cost of the three initial participants and all program materials. Additional participants are $350 each. Existing NICHE sites can train additional staff members at a price of $1,650 each.
As an additional feature you will receive a Geriatric Institutional Profile (GIAP) at no cost. The GIAP is a web-based survey utilizing a valid and reliable tool that is designed to assess a hospital’s readiness to implement geriatric healthcare programs. The GIAP measures nurse knowledge and attitudes toward older adults as well as the organizational attributes that support or constrain geriatric best practices. The results, which are benchmarked against other hospitals, assist in prioritizing educational and clinical initiatives.
