Saudi Nurse Leadership and Management Group
King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre
King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre’s initiative in conducting a structured nursing leadership and management program is exemplary and unique among regional countries. Ms. Judy Mosley, executive director of nursing affairs, “called for action” to have a leadership program that is aimed to create and develop future Saudi nurses. The program started in December 2011. Bushra Al Hanidi was assigned to lead and coordinate the program operation. It was an outcome based on and supported by the latest evidence in leadership development. Growth in personality and abilities were evident among the participants throughout the program, and all reflected this in their daily acts and thinking as leaders. The graduation day was 3 December 2012. The eight nurses transferred to leadership positions upon the completion of the program; five became assistant unit head nurses, one became a nurse recruiter, one is a clinical instructor, and one is a nurse informatics .
