Certificate in Advanced Nursing Leadership and Management

The Certificate Advanced Nursing Leadership and Management provides registered nurses with enhanced professional knowledge and skills to better position them to enact leadership and management roles.

The certificate aligns with competencies that are considered integral to the leadership and management functions of today’s nurses. The LEADS framework encompasses the current best practice guidelines for Developing and Sustaining Nursing Leadership, as published by the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO). This program is the first in Ontario to build curriculum based on this framework.

The certificate builds on the foundational leadership and management content encompassed by a baccalaureate degree in nursing; provides access to courses that focus on a learner’s main area of leadership and/or management interest; and provides learners with opportunities to apply newly acquired knowledge to a practical leadership and/or management issue.
