Aspiring Digital Leadership Programme


The Florence Nightingale Foundation is pleased to offer a self-funded leadership programme to aspiring digital career nurses, midwives and AHPs. These are professionals at ANY stage of their career who are looking to take their first steps on a digital career path and have aspiration to influence digital transformation.

This four-day virtual programme offers a supportive learning environment to develop leadership identity, capacity, and capability. Delegates will leave with the tools to influence organisational and patient outcomes at a local, systems, national and international level of health and social care delivery through digital transformation.

The programme will enable participants to:

  • Explore, define and develop their unique approach to leadership within digital transformation.
  • Prepare for future leadership positions which offer them the opportunity to exercise their knowledge and influence at a systems level.
  • Explore their role in maintaining the art of healthcare whilst embedding digital solutions into practice.
  • Develop skills in educating and engaging the wider healthcare workforce, whilst reiterating the need to retain clinical judgement and decision making by not becoming dependent on the technology or detached from the art of patient care.

Virtual (see dates below)

The four-day virtual programme will cost £1,000 per delegate.

Places can be self-funded or funded by the employer.

Be part of a life changing experience!

Participants report the “life changing” leadership experience and its professional and personal impact. Participants report feeling more confident to speak out and influence improvements in patient care and health outcomes.

“Valuable practical tools.  Recognition of issues in digital care provision is reassuring.  Necessary for ALL clinical digital teams to move towards better collaborative working.” (Former programme participant)
