Research Activity

    Title:
    NLI Evaluation
    Description:
    The purpose of this study is to measure the level of change experienced by Nurse Leadership Institute (NLI) Fellows as a result of participating in the yearlong Leadership Development Program (LDP) and to what degree this change extends from the participant to the community in which the participant interacts. Specifically, this project will measure the change(s) participants’ experience at the individual, organizational, and community level, as a result of attending the LDP activities. Hypothesis: When graduate level prepared nurses from academic or service centers, participate in the yearlong Leadership Development Program, over time they report positive individual, organizational, and community changes as a result of participating in this program. Null Hypothesis When graduate level prepared nurses from academic or service centers participate in the yearlong Leadership Development Program, over time, they report no change at the individual, organizational, or community level as a result of participating in this program. The results of this study are intended to be generalizable since they would inform the field and provide a model for evaluating other leadership programs.
