Wisconsin Creates Organization Recognition Program for Health Systems

Organizations that Lead by Example to Advance Degrees (LEAD) are being recognized for these efforts in a unique program underway in Wisconsin. The LEAD recognition program was launched by the Wisconsin Center for Nursing (WCN), co-lead for the Action Coalition. It is designed to recognize organizations who are paving the way to advance levels of nursing education in response to the IOM Report Recommendations. Large or small, all organizations can be part of this important initiative by taking creative approaches to meet the needs of their own nursing workforce. Participants are welcome to submit information as to ‘tell their story’ as to what they are doing to advance nursing education in their systems, which is then posted in a LEAD gallery on the WCN website. All organizations can learn from each other in this important learning environment, as they share their journey in the true spirit of collaboration. It’s the Wisconsin way!
