The Illinois Nurse Leader Fellowship is a program dedicated to the development and support of managers and new directors from diverse practice environments throughout the state. Incorporating education, mentoring, and networking, the fellowship is designed to build and enhance leadership skills and competencies.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 fellowship program has been reworked into a virtual program consisting of monthly zoom sessions, educational modules, and personalized coaching. Upon completion, graduates agree to serve as mentors to future participants.
All candidates for the Illinois Nursing Leadership Fellowship must be nominated by the Chief Nursing Officer (or designee) of their employing organization. It is strongly recommended that organizations send two participants so that a team approach may be utilized.
The Illinois Nursing Leadership Fellowship is an initiative of the Ilinois Healthcare Action Coalition (IHAC), co-led by the the Illinois Organization of Nurse Leaders, American Nurses Association of Illinois, and Illinois Center for Nursing.
At the end of the IONL Nurse Leader Fellowship program the participant will be able to:
Dr. Shelly Malin, Dr. Melinda Noonan, Dr. Cecilia Wendler (2016 faculty), Dr. Janet Krejci
