Time:  Half day (3-4 Hrs)

Audience:  Nurses

Professional nursing practice demands the abilities to lead and follow effectively, respectfully, and creatively while fluidly shifting from one to the other and back again at a moment’s notice.  Whether executing or challenging a physian’s order, speaking up about a patient’s concerns, suggesting an idea for quality improvement, or providing feedback to a nurse assisstant, this dynamic dance requires mastery of essential skills communication, and collaboration.  Much different than learning to start an IV or memorizing a drug’s adverse events, aptitude in leadership development requires confidence, humility,  emotional risk-taking, and excellent communication skills.  All of which can be extremely difficult to develop in today’s high-stress, high-stakes world of healthcare.  Medical Improv is a dynamic and fun experiential learning process that promotes self-awareness, curiosity, assertiveness, listening, flexibility, and trust that are vital for leaders at all levels.
