Emerging Clinical Leader Summit Series

NWone is hosting a comprehensive, 2-tiered leadership series for all emerging clinical leaders. The first tier,Emerging Clinical Leader: Foundationsis a nine part leadership series that is targeted to enhance the knowledge and growth of the aspiring nurse leader, but will also benefit clinical leaders from other disciplines. 

New in 2015,Beyond the Foundation: Advanced Skills for the Emerging Clinical Leaderis a second tier to the series and consists of five new workshops that build on the foundational knowledge presented in Tier 1. 

Individuals may enroll for individual selected workshops of their choice, but we believe the greatest benefit is to attend the full series and to couple this education with a local level mentorship for maximal benefit. We hope that you will encourage your peers and colleagues to enroll in this program, or consider it for yourself.

Vote for your NWone 2015 Board!

Dear NWone Members:

During August and September of each year, NWone invites all members to vote on a slate of candidates to serve as officers and commission chair-persons for the NWone Board of Directors.  The NWone board is actually your board.   The individuals elected to these board positions will be the leaders who set the strategic direction for NWone and determine your organization's future.  Especially now, during this great transition in health care, the responsibility of these leaders to set a course that will prepare NWone to be the most respected, robust, and leading-edge organization for all regional nurse leaders, could not be more important.

I encourage you to exercise your right and responsibility, as a NWone member, to choose our future leadership.  Though you may not personally know all of the candidates on the current ballot, we ask that you take the time to read their essays, and review their credentials, and to participate in the NWone board member selection process by casting your vote.

The current slate of candidates, their bios and responses to the essay questions that are part of the nomination process are below.

Electronic voting will begin on August 1, 2014 and will be closed on September 18, 2014.  Though this is a fairly long voting period we ask that you do not delay in casting your vote. We want to make sure that the majority of our NWone members participate in this selection process and we especially want YOUR vote. 

The results of the 2014 elections will be publically announced at the NWone Fall program Meeting of the Membership.   This meeting is open to all NWone members whether you are registering to attend the fall program or not.   The meeting will take place on October 3, 2014 at 2:00pm at the Seattle Airport Marriott, Seattle Washington.  We hope to see you there, and look forward to receiving your vote in this year's election.   Thank you so much for your support and involvement in NWone.
