Leadership plays a big role in inspiring success. At Kaiser Permanente, we are committed to giving our nurse managers the support and tools to develop and enhance their leadership skills, while inspiring the nurse leaders of tomorrow. Through programs like the Kaiser Permanente Nursing Leadership Institute, we actively encourage communication and collaboration-enabling us to build a stronger team from the inside out.
In this section, you'll find information about national nursing leadership initiatives, news stories and research on nursing leadership topics, messages from nursing leaders, and descriptions of the NNLC's goals.
Comprising of senior leaders from across Kaiser Permanente and senior nurse leaders in our Labor Management Partnership, the National Nursing Leadership Council (NNLC) provides leadership to achieve high-quality nursing outcomes, contributing to a superior care experience for Kaiser Permanente members.
In order to clarify and share scope of practice definitions across regions, the goal of the NNLC is to ensure that nurses have the optimum resources and experience at Kaiser Permanente. The NNLC also works with labor groups to improve workplace safety, and meets quarterly to further initiatives in the six Nursing Pathways.
