BC Nursing Leadership Institute: program evaluation report in cIRcle!


The first BC NLI pilot was conducted in March 2005 with 25 first-line nurse leaders. Successful evaluation outcomes resulted in 13 additional sessions between March 2006 and March 2010: three sessions annually with an average of 35-40 first-line nurse leaders in attendance.

Based upon the four major components of the BC NLI: a) a 4-day residential workshop, b) mentoring supports at practice sites, c) year-long leadership projects at practice sites, and d) an online knowledge network with a discussion forum, resources, and a facilitator or knowledge broker (KB).
