CHICAGO – The inaugural ICRS Advanced Leadership Institute was held April 6-7, 2022, in Washington, D.C. and graduated 32 scholars from around the world.

NCSBN Chief Officer, Nursing Regulation, Maryann Alexander, PhD, RN, FAAN, notes, “We want to see those who receive this certificate go on to become the future leaders of state, national and international regulatory bodies.”

ICRS is an educational initiative that offers online and blended courses designed to cultivate and elevate nursing leaders and policymakers around the world. ICRS’s premier offering is the ICRS certificate program, which is a pioneering, competency-based course of study. This program is designed to enrich and inspire nursing regulators, health policy leaders and other professionals who are entrusted with patient safety.

ICRS certificate graduate, Caroline Muchina, LLB, CS, AKIB, corporation secretary and manager of legal services at the Nursing Council of Kenya, remarked, “I embraced the opportunity to participate in the only program of its kind dedicated to the education of health care regulators. Through the guidance of my ICRS instructors and peers, I learned to look at issues more objectively and from an informed and global perspective.”
