Duke University School of Nursing Welcomes Newest Class to Emerging Leaders Program

The Duke University School of Nursing welcomed its newest class to the Emerging Leaders Program during a kickoff celebration this week. This is the second group of nursing professionals chosen to participant in the year-long professional development program.

The Emerging Leaders Program is a collaboration between the School of Nursing and Duke Learning & Organization Development, a unit within Duke Human Resources. Participants were nominated by Duke Nursing staff members and the Executive Leadership Team. The participants will gather for six sessions, which will feature coursework and opportunities to hear from Duke leaders, including the university president and leaders from the School of Nursing.

In their sessions, participants will explore situational leadership, project management, budgeting, conflict resolution, and communication and presentation skills. There will also be group projects in between sessions that tackle issues relevant to the School of Nursing.

Libby Joyce, director of the Office of Institutional Research for Duke Nursing and a graduate of the program’s first class, was selected to speak at the kickoff celebration where she told the newest class of participants:

“I have a sneaking feeling that over this next year, you’re going to be challenging yourself. And you’re going to be challenging others in this process. You’re going to be discovering new talents and discovering things in yourself that might surprise you. You’re going to make new friends, mentors and allies in this process. I think it’s going to be surprising what you learn.”
