|Nurse Leadership Academy|
The Nurse Leadership Academy will be a leadership development program for new and emerging nurse leaders across all healthcare settings. Fellows will learn foundational leadership skills and demonstrate these skills through an applied leadership project within their organization.
The program will be one-year long. The first six months will be dedicated to live didactic sessions and webinars focused on five concepts: Fundamentals of Effective Leadership, Organizational Culture, Facilitating a High Reliability Environment, Influencing Change: Driving Outcomes through Strategic Action, and No Margin No Mission-Examining the Finances of Healthcare. Fellows will then have an additional six months to work on their applied leadership project with support from their individually identified mentor. There will be check in points with program leadership and peers through a virtual community. The program will culminate at 12 months with presentations from fellows on their applied leadership projects.
This program will take place in Richmond, Virginia.
Fellows will learn foundational leadership skills and demonstrate this through successful completion of an applied leadership project within their organization.

The Nightingale Legacy Fund
VNF’s Nightingale Legacy Fund, which supports the development of the Nurse Leadership Academy, also pays tribute to nursing leaders who have made a difference. As a contributor, you will have the opportunity to recognize those nurses who paved the way for you, and whose leadership has advanced the profession of nursing; all while supporting this very important initiative. The nurse leader you recognize will receive an email letting them know you wanted to say thank you! Contribute to the Nightingale Legacy Fund here.
Lauren Goodloe Legacy Scholarship
VNF also developed a scholarship for the Nurse Leadership Academy to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Lauren Goodloe and her commitment to nursing and nursing education in Virginia. Dr. Goodloe served as president of the Virginia Nurses Association while serving as a respected faculty member and assistant dean for clinical operations and associate professor at VCU’s School of Nursing, all while fighting a valiant battle with cancer. Please take this opportunity to put your stamp on the future by making a contribution for up-and-coming nurse leaders.
