AONE Initiative Will Transform Care
Apply now for 2013 CIT initiative — deadline is November 1

The American Organization of Nurse Executives, a subsidiary of the American Hospital Association, will accept applications Oct. 1 through Nov. 1 for the Care Innovation and Transformation (CIT) initiative. Using a bottom-up approach with leadership support, hospitals and nursing teams will transform care delivery and the environment in which they work, resulting in improved patient care, hospital performance and employee engagement. CIT participants will meet face to face four times over a two-year period, beginning in 2013, and interact regularly through monthly conference calls, web seminars and other communication tools.
