Four AAMC nurses selected as Nurse Leadership Institute fellows
Congratulations to Crystal Asche, MBA, BSN, RNC-OB, C-EFM (Women’s Surgical, Clinical Supervisor), Alexandra Benoff, MSN, RN, CPNP (Pediatric, Clinical Supervisor), Amanda Chipko, MSN, RN, CRNP, FNP-BC, ACHPN (Pain Nurse Practitioner), and Ashley Rice, MSN, RN, CPN (Clinical Research Nurse), for being selected as fellows in the 2017-2018 cohort of the Nurse Leadership Institute at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. In 2015, the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (MHSCRC) invested $2.5 million to build nursing leadership capacity across the state and establish the Nurse Leadership Institute (NLI). The NLI’s year-long Leadership Development Program (LDP) prepares nurses to assume leadership positions and participate as full partners in developing health care delivery models that improve health outcomes for Maryland residents. This is a highly selective program and Anne Arundel Medical Center had more nurses selected to participate than any other hospital in the state.
Each of the fellows are supported through the year long program by a mentor. Many thanks to Jenn Smell, Jane Rhule, Kathy Bieler and Barbara Jacobs who are acting as mentors.
