Nursing Leadership

The Betty Irene Moore Speaker Series

Lessons in Leadership: The Betty Irene Moore Speaker Series embodies Betty Irene Moore’s vision and hope for nurses to lead within their teams, organizations and communities, with the ultimate goal of improving the experience and outcomes of patient care. Through personal experience, Betty recognized that nurses play a critical role in providing safe, high-quality patient care and outcomes. They are caregivers, mentors, teachers and researchers; and they provide 95 percent of direct patient care in hospitals. This recognition gave rise to the Betty Irene Moore Nursing Initiative, with building leadership skills in nurses as one of its main strategies. 

Lessons in Leadership is a collection of 13 short videos featuring nationally-recognized nurse leaders whose leadership spans nursing, health care, government and other sectors. The collection includes 12 individual videos, each focused on one leader, plus a compilation video highlighting all 12. In each, leaders reflect on the lessons learned and strategies that shaped their successes and leadership roles. The leaders include numerous recipients of “Living Legend” awards; faculty members from top universities; CEOs, executive directors and board members of the nation’s leading health care organizations; and prominent policy advisors.

Lessons in Leadership has the potential to play an important role in the national conversation regarding leadership within and outside of health care. The themes of professional and personal triumph echoed in the videos are a testament to the elevated leadership role of nurses today.

We invite you to harness this unique and inspirational leadership experience by viewing, sharing and using the collection. Join us in inspiring future leaders in nursing and health care.
