LANP is designed for those who have experience in academic administration and aspire to more senior administrative or executive positions within the nursing academic unit. The year-long fellowship provides participants with a focused assessment experience, a range of content and exercises related to successful executive leadership, and the opportunity to establish a peer network that fosters long-term partnerships and collegial support.
