Dr. Jean Giddens Completes AACN-Wharton Leadership Program
Jean Giddens, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, dean and professor, was among the third class of nursing deans who recently completed the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Wharton Executive Leadership Program. Launched in 2012 in collaboration with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, this world-class enrichment experience is designed exclusively for top academic leaders in schools of nursing.
The curriculum for the AACN-Wharton program is designed to provide the concepts and tools needed to enhance leadership capacity and hone the skills that are essential to thrive and move forward strategically. Using a competitive process, only 30 academic nursing leaders are selected to participate each year.
