Summer Leadership Institute for School and Public Health Nurses

Boston University School of Public Health’s Population Health Exchange (PHX) and the School Health Institute for Education and Leadership Development (SHIELD) are collaborating to offer an exciting new Leadership Program for School and Public Health Nurses beginning in June, continuing through the year*, and culminating with an advanced leadership program the following summer.

Course topics are tailored to learners and may include:

  • Developing your leadership strengths;
  • Communicating for impact;
  • Using the power of data to tell a story (Story Mapping);
  • Community assessments with an emphasis on equity.

*The team will meet for four workshops over the course of the year

In addition to providing deep learning opportunities in leadership, this program provides the skills needed to assess for, and effectively communicate about, a community health disparity to initiate change.
