SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota – September 25, 2019 – In cooperation with the State Board of Nursing, EmBe has accepted participants for the 12-month 2019 Aberdeen Nursing Leadership class beginning in September. As the fourth cohort, the 2019 class will follow a proven curriculum designed to empower healthcare leaders by developing leadership skills that deliver community impact. The participants represent healthcare in the region, and will benefit from connections to business and thought leaders that will help them shape their personal and leadership development. The community benefits, too, through a strengthened workforce built upon individuals who have dedicated their careers to caring for others.
The joint Leadership Program has been conducted by the State Board of Nursing and EmBe for the past 3 years, with more than 40 graduates.
“We greatly value our nursing leaders, and providing an opportunity for personal development and growth is an important way to nurture and retain top talent,” said Linda Young of the State Board of Nursing.
Erin Bosch, Director of Women’s Programming said, “Following the formal retreat and learning experiences, the class will be paired with experienced volunteer mentors to walk with them as they refine and implement their personal and professional goals.”
