Hays Selected to Serve in Emerging Leaders Program

Clinical Assistant Professor Stacia Hays, DNP, ARNP has been selected to participate in the Florida Center for Nursing/Florida Action Coalition Board Service Initiative for Emerging Nurse Leaders. The purpose of the three-month training, supported by the Florida Blue Foundation, is to prepare nurse leaders to speak for the health needs of their communities. More than ever, boards need strong, strategic contributors who can speak to the health needs of their communities. The Board Service class participants will be taught the responsibilities as stewards of organizational board membership as well as the principles of governance that power exceptional boards. Nurses are by the nature of their work continuous learners, adaptive to change, results oriented, have the highest integrity, and are constructive partners.

The program is designed for Individuals who demonstrate an interest in learning and development of skills necessary for board service and those who have already achieved success in service on policy setting entities are invited to contact us and serve as a mentor. Graduates of the program will be prepared to serve on a policy making board, committee or task force in Florida.
