DUSON Emerging Leaders Program

The goal of the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is to identify and develop Duke University School of Nursing staff by helping them prepare themselves to advance in their careers. This program was created through a collaboration between School of Nursing Human Resources and the Learning and Organizational Development Office and focuses on helping participants expand their understanding of their leadership capacity and develop the skills that will help set the stage for their future career success.

Modeled after the highly successful Duke Leadership Academy, this 12-month program will expose the cohort of DUSON emerging leaders to personal, as well as professional development opportunities. ELP participants will receive opportunities and coaching to build their individual leadership skills as well as meet with University and Health System senior leaders to learn from their career journeys. Each participant will work on a team project that examines an area of organizational improvement. These projects will be presented at the end of the program and are designed to demonstrate their critical thinking and problem solving skills.

The size of the cohorts for the Emerging Leaders Program will be limited to allow for personalized attention and the ability to develop strong working relationships in a team-based environment.
