It is essential that professional nurse leaders are effectively prepared to address challenges and opportunities in today’s ever-changing health care environment. Limited literature exists related to a competency-based curriculum to develop professional nurse leaders. Organizationally, the need to have a vested interest in professional development of nurse leaders exists. Over the last five years, nurse leaders gathered information on the importance of using clearly defined, evidence-based, nursing leadership competencies. American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program, American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association (AMRPA), and Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN) have supported the need to develop leadership skills and competencies for new nurse leaders. A review of current orientation processes at the organization revealed a lack of an evidence-based curriculum for orientation and mentorship. Research validated a lack of formal orientation and mentorship. Research validated a lack of formal orientation and mentorship, evidence-based content, and perceptions of nurse managers and supervisor on competencies that contribute to success. This resulted in support to develop and implement a formal, evidence-based curriculum. A 12-month Nurse Director Orientation and Mentorship curriculum was developed.
