Nurse Manager Leadership Partnership

Recognizing the widespread, expressed need for nurse manager leadership development, the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) and the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) have joined in an alliance — the Nurse Manager Leadership Partnership (NMLP) — to direct their combined knowledge, expertise and resources toward effectively fulfilling this need.

The NMLP Learning Domain Framework is the NMLP's view of nurse manager leadership development. The Nurse Manager Skills Inventory is a foundational component of a comprehensive initiative of the NMLP to assist nurse managers in achieving their developmental goals throughout their careers.

Also available is the Essentials of Nurse Manager Orientation (ENMO), an online, 40-hour, self-paced orientation module. This learning module prepares the nurse manager to sit for the AONE Credentialing Center's certification exam and become a Certified Nurse Manager and Leader (CNML).
