Participants will explore ways to consistently integrate, communicate, advocate, and transform the brand image that All Nurses are Leaders within and across nursing practice, education, research, advocacy, technology/innovation, professional associations, and throughout the public domain.
Recent research findings indicate a significant gap exists between how nurses perceive their profession currently versus how they would like to be perceived. Current brand position statements most frequently selected as descriptive of nursing focused on themes of "caring"; however, "leaders in practice, education, and research" and "patient centered healthcare providers" were descriptors selected as most desired for the brand position for the nursing profession (p = 0.01) Godsey & Hayes, 2018; (Godsey, et al., 2020).
At the conclusion of the Symposium for the Brand Image of Nursing, participants will be able to:
Describe the Brand Image of Nursing as perceived by Registered Nurses and by the public.
