Ethical Leadership and the Nurse’s Role as a Community Leader



12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for a Nursing Hot Topic discussion.

Nurses have a Code of Ethics that guides our work as nursing professionals but as leaders in our communities and in our professional associations, do we understand the principles of being an Ethical Leader? Leaders influence the policy, culture, and behavior of an association and/or community. As others around us struggle with what the right thing is, we as nurses are in a unique place to model ethical leadership. Join us for a discussion on how to model these behaviors as we volunteer in our professional associations and in our communities.

This event offers 1.0 CE credit to attendees.

The Illinois Nurses Foundation is approved as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the Ohio Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. (OBN-001-91).
