Download or share a flyer about this event

Many organizations and senior nurse leaders value the idea of nurse leader development, but either don’t have programs that are specific to nurse leaders that offer meaningful development and that truly develop nurse leaders, or that ultimately contribute to their goal of higher nurse leader support, engagement, competency, and staff retention.

Program Objectives:  The attendees should be able to identify and utilize at least three new approaches to develop their teams or themselves from an evidence-based perspective that prioritizes authentic leadership and functional skills.

Registration Fees

$160 SEPONL Members | $250 Non Members | $75 Students/Retired

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders was chartered in 1986 as the Southeastern Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Executives as an affiliation of the Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders (PONL). The name of the organization was changed to Southeastern Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders to reflect a changing philosophy that focused on nursing leadership. The primary mission of the original organization was, and remains today, to be a vehicle for networking and information exchange among nurse executives. The organization has evolved to include some 200 members, with the inclusion of all nurses in leadership positions being eligible for membership. SEPONL is a non-profit, personal membership society which promotes excellence in the practice of nursing administration.
