A pediatric teaching hospital developed a comprehensive leadership training program for midlevel nurse leaders with varying levels of management knowledge and experience. Content was based on American Organization for Nursing Leadership nurse manager competencies and data from a comprehensive needs assessment. Learners identified differentiating between leadership and management, influencing behavior, managing change, and communication as areas of increased confidence. This program is applicable to any hospital with multiple midlevel nurse leaders new to the role.
