The Alliance for Nursing Informatics (ANI) is a collaboration of organizations that represent a unified voice for nursing informatics. ANI provides the synergy and structure needed to advance the efforts of nursing informatics professionals in leadership, practice, education, policy and research.
One of ANI's objectives is to identify leadership, provide mentorship, and encourage nursing informatics participation in national nursing informatics activities. As part of this objective, we support the ANI Nursing Informatics Emerging Leaders Program. The program enhances the leadership skills and competencies of individuals in the following key areas:
• Communication and networking
• Strategic planning
• Negotiation and persuasion
• Leading and managing change
• Local and global leadership in nursing informatics
The program identifies and develops emerging leaders in nursing informatics and involves them in a two-year program to learn about their own leadership potential, identify opportunities for professional growth, and gain knowledge and experience necessary to serve nursing informatics through practice, education, research and/or policy. The ultimate goal of the program is to develop an individual capable of leading an informatics-related organization.
ANI will select two individuals to participate in the two-year program. Components of the program include attending the ANI governing directors meetings, participating at the AMIA annual symposium and the HIMSS conference, and completing and publishing about their leadership project. The selected individuals are paired with a mentor for dialogue and coaching. Mentors are selected by a sub-set of the ANI governing directors based on the proposed leadership project and will provide feedback and guidance throughout the program.
