RN Leadership Academy 

We recently unveiled a Nursing Leadership Academy that touches all levels from charge nurse to CNO. The academy encompasses all aspects of leadership that will help you grow as a leader with Baylor.  

We have ongoing nursing leadership development which includes: 
  • “Boot Camp” for newly promoted nursing leaders
  • Preparation for national specialty certification in Nursing Administration
  • Seminars with recognized nursing experts
  • Shared Leadership/Governance
  • Engaging and Retaining Talent Workshops
  • Talent and Organizational Development classes on Excellence in Leadership, Behavioral Interviewing, Project Management, Crucial Conversations and other leadership topics

Performance Improvement

In April 2009, we kicked off our BHCS Nurse Executive Fellowship, which was designed to develop executive leadership skills in our high potential leaders. The fellowship was created in partnership with the Southern Methodist University (SMU) Cox School of Business. SMU and Baylor Health Care System have worked together to deliver a customized 13-month curriculum which is based on competencies determined by Baylor and the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE). The curriculum includes completion of a capstone project and classes and speakers covering topics such as, developing effective leadership behaviors, leading change, analyzing financial statements and building high performance teams. Also, each fellow is partnered with a senior leader mentor who advises and coaches the nursing leader during the fellowship.
