The AAACN Ambulatory Care Nurse Executive Toolkit was designed with nurses like you in mind.
With the transformation of healthcare from episode-based acute treatment to continuum-based lifespan treatment, ambulatory care nurses need to be equipped and empowered to lead so vast, diverse populations become healthier. This imperative requires leadership that has clinical, strategic, and operational competencies to lead the redesign of care delivery models.
The American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN) Ambulatory Care Nurse Executive Toolkit is a collection of best practice strategies and tactics, collected from across the country and in current literature, aimed at supporting the ambulatory care nurse executive and other leaders in ambulatory or other healthcare settings.
This Toolkit is a compilation of resources used to examine and develop organization structures, roles, and competencies for the ambulatory care nurse executive, which includes:
- Evidence and examples of current ambulatory care nurse leadership job roles and responsibilities, including leadership development processes, from small rural settings to large academic medical centers.
- Resources and references to guide and facilitate assessment of the current state of ambulatory care nursing structure and identify an ideal state organization structure.
- Resources to make a business case to boards and organizations on the role and value of ambulatory nursing leadership.
