Mapping a Personal Leadership Journey
On April 1 and 2, 2014, the Office of Professional Development presented a two-day workshop titled Mapping and Sustaining a Personal Leadership Journey. The interactive leadership development workshop held at the Carraway Davie House and Conference Center targeted early to mid-career nurse leaders and included didactic as well as facilitated group activities. Participants learned about their personal leadership strengths to create a leadership development plan with strategies for success.
The Office of Professional Development was designed to expand the reach of UAB School of Nursing (UABSON) by promoting and leading high-quality, innovative educational programs that advance health and healthcare, both locally and globally, through the lifelong learning of nurse leaders and other health professionals. The knowledge and expertise of our nationally recognized multidisciplinary faculty and alumni are utilized to develop and deliver innovative signature programs.
Beginning May 2014, all medical certificates issued to interstate truck and bus drivers must come from medical examiners on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners. This course is designed to prepare nurse practitioners, physicians (both MDs and DOs), physician assistants and doctors of chiropractic to sit for the certification test required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to become a Certified Medical Examiner.
The Office of Professional Development provides continuing education opportunities for UABSON faculty members as well as other healthcare professionals by means of face to face conferences, lectures and workshops as well as online educational programs.
