The Global Nursing Leadership Institute (GNLI) offers an advanced leadership programme for nurses and/or midwives at senior level and executive positions in developed and developing countries across the world. The programme, drawing on the expertise of international faculty, allows participants to review and enhance their national and global leadership knowledge and skills within a collaborative and stimulating learning culture. The GNLI is facilitated by Dr Stephanie Ferguson, Associate Professor and Director of the Community Nursing Organization at the Virginia Commonwealth University. Dr Ferguson is also the Director of the ICN Leadership for Change™ programme.
ICN has been a pioneer in leadership, management and negotiation skill development for nurses for more than 25 years, through the highly successful Leadership for Change™ (LFC) and Leadership in Negotiation (LIN) programmes. The GNLI represents the third-arm of ICN's leadership development strategy.
