Prepare for the challenges of clinical leadership in the Ambulatory Surgery Center Industry by participating in  the ASC Director of Nursing Bootcamp – a Comprehensive mentored program to prepare new and aspiring directors and managers for their role or to assist experienced nurses to bring their leadership to the next level.  With over 175 graduates, our bootcamps lead the ASC Industry in training Administrators, Nursing Directors and Business office Managers. Building on the incredible success of our 7 previous bootcamps, the boot camp includes reading materials, virtual mentoring consultations and an intensive 4-Day Virtual Conference to be presented in October 2022.  The ASC Director of Nursing Bootcamp is the industry’s most comprehensive preparation for the role of the ASC Director of Nursing or Nurse Manager.  Presented by John Goehle, one of the nation’s leading experts on the ASC Industry and the host of the ASC Podcast with John Goehle and Laurie Roderiques, RN, Director of Clinical Services for Ambulatory Healthcare Strategies and one of the nation’s leading ASC infection control experts.
