Elevate Nursing’s Voice Through Media Training
Saturday, 1:30 p.m. 

Barbara Glickstein, MPH, RN, Co-Director, Center for Health Policy and Media Engagement, George Washington University

By training nurse leaders and experts to be media-ready and promoting them to reporters and media outlets, you can both change the face of media and your organization's reputation. Leaders in nursing who work as change agents within health care systems are often called upon to speak with reporters or craft messages designed for various public relations strategies—social media, publications, and multimedia platforms. Media training for leadership in nursing and health care should be a core tool available at every school of nursing.
