Get Customizable, On-Site Training for Your Director of Nursing

Directors of Nursing in skilled nursing facilities carry a great deal of weight on their shoulders. From day-to-day clinical operations, ensuring compliance with state and federal regulations, and preparing for an unannounced state survey, DONs hold great responsibility for the overall success of an organization. Most importantly, they must ensure that residents receive the quality care they deserve. 

The role of a DON can change quickly, so it is essential to ensure your nursing leader is confident, flexible, and prepared for crisis situations. When unforeseen circumstances arise, the care team will look to the Director of Nursing for direction, guidance, and support. But what if he or she isn't prepared?

LeaderStat’s consulting team recognizes the immense pressure and high expectations DONs face in long-term care. Because of this, we are partnering with nursing centers across the country to provide customizable DON Training and Education as a way of showing our understanding and commitment to this vital role in senior living centers.

Our RN consultants will work alongside your DON on-site to provide the training needed to be an effective nurse leader. Though it can be beneficial to a seasoned DON, this training was developed for newer Directors of Nursing to help them learn the ropes and become successful in their role in a skilled nursing facility (SNF) or assisted living facility.

During the DON training and education engagement, senior living organizations can expect our consulting team to:

  • Perform an in-depth review of the center’s policies and procedures on risk management, QAPI, infection control, admissions/discharges, and emergency preparedness
  • Evaluate survey readiness
  • Assess the nursing department’s roles, responsibilities, and processes
  • Review resident electronic health records
  • Provide guidance on rounding and employee engagement
  • Develop a customized plan with the DON to include daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual duties

Once the on-site training is completed, our RN consultant will create a final report to outline an ongoing action plan to guide your healthcare organization toward sustainable and effective change. 

Successful senior living organizations have strong leaders. Whether your Director of Nursing is brand new or has been in their role for several years, this tailored, in-person education could be instrumental for the development of their career as a nurse leader as well as the long-term success and stability of the organization.
