Doctor of Nursing Program receives LEADS certification from the Canadian College of Health Leaders

2 May 2023

The Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL) has awarded LEADS certification to the Lawrence Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing’s Doctor of Nursing program as part of a three strategic partnership agreement.

The partnership agreement provides Doctor of Nursing program participants with an opportunity to obtain their Certified Health Executive (CHE) designation while completing their studies. This designation

“We are excited about this collaboration with not only Canada’s first Doctor of Nursing program, but also Bloomberg Nursing, who show their commitment to health leadership by committing to have the CHE as a preferred designation for their students,” says Brenda Lammi, Vice President, Leadership and Professional Development at the CCHL.

“The leadership of our Doctor of Nursing students is reflected through their bold and evidence-based work that sets out to improve health care,” said Linda Johnston, Dean of the Lawrence Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing. “This partnership with the CCHL and the LEADS designation for our DN program, further illustrates the tremendous leadership opportunities available to Bloomberg Nursing students.”

This collaboration will also allow for both organizations to better address the constantly evolving needs of health leaders and align themselves with the LEADS in a Caring Environment framework. This framework is a foundation for Canadian health leadership development and defines the knowledge, skills and attitudes a leader must have to positively contribute to the Canadian health care system.
