Nurse leaders are the heart of health care—and with an aging population and growing nursing shortage, they are more important than ever. At Cizik School of Nursing, the Ambassador Program gives today’s talented nursing students the skills and expertise to become tomorrow’s nurse leaders.
In the ever-changing health care industry, one truth remains constant: Nurse leaders help shape patient care delivery to build stronger, healthier communities. Today, nurse leaders are taking on greater responsibilities than ever before, from managing interdisciplinary health care teams to supervising COVID-19 vaccine rollouts.
With specialized skills in management, teamwork, and communication, nurse leaders are increasingly in demand across the health care spectrum. But a growing nursing shortage threatens the stability of our health care system, a trend that will only continue without greater support of nursing leadership training.
The Ambassador Program aims to address this critical shortage and to develop future nurse leaders. By offering unique mentorship and leadership development activities, the program transforms top nursing students into confident, competent, and empowered nurse leaders.
Through seminars and courses that help students strengthen and cultivate leadership experience and expertise, program participants gain vital skills that prepare them for careers throughout health care.
Exceptional nurse leaders can turn chaos into order to ensure quality health care for all—and our Ambassador Program helps them learn how.
A commitment to nurse leaders at UTHealth is a commitment to our community’s future. Your support of Many Faces. One Mission. will attract the best and brightest students to Cizik School of Nursing, helping us develop exceptional nurse leaders for our communities.
