ATC’s Nursing Chair Selected for Leadership Program
(March 17, 2016, Aiken, SC) Demica N. Williams, Aiken Technical College’s nursing department chair, has been selected to participate in the Amy V. Cockcroft Leadership Development Program, organized through the University of South Carolina’s College of Nursing.
“I’m really excited,” said Williams. “It will help me grow as a leader. This program will give me the tools to help our faculty and our students be successful.”
The program aims to develop nurse leaders from healthcare organizations and educational institutions. During the year-long program, participants will learn about qualities of a leader, building successful teams, and how to adapt as the industry’s needs and demands change.
Participants will also plan and implement a project to address a recommendation of the Institute of Medicine’s report on the future of nursing. Williams’s project will center on ATC’s registered nurse and licensed practical nurse programs.
“My interest is in streamlining program outcomes for both our RN and LPN programs to enhance our participation in academic progression in nurse education,” she said.
The program will begin its 2016-17 session on March 23.
