Nurse Leadership Management Specialist

Project Description

The Nursing Leadership Initiative in Malawi has requested the support of Peace Corps Response Volunteers (PCRVs) to serve as Nurse Leadership Management Specialists, without the provision of direct medical care to patients or clinical supervision of students. The Nursing Leadership Initiative aims to elevate the nursing profession within PEPFAR-supported countries to strengthen the healthcare workforce globally and ensure HIV response gains are sustained. The initiative is also aimed at equipping the nursing workforce to lead and respond appropriately to issues of global health security, including HIV/AIDS.

The PCRVs will work in collaboration with implementing partner organizations, Peace Corps staff, and PEPFAR to strengthen capacity for Nursing Leadership in identifying, preventing, and managing diseases that are newly appearing and reappearing in the population including HIV/AIDS. The PCRVs will also collaborate with organization staff to identify and orient nursing leadership in innovative digital solutions to simplify workflows, communicate health risks, and provide quality patient-centered care/HIV/AIDS services.

Peace Corps Response established its "Advancing Health Professionals" program in 2019. Response Volunteers serving with the AHP program seek to improve health outcomes on a societal level by providing high-level, specialized service in the health sector. AHP projects include health professions educators, health systems strengthening, service delivery improvement, and other non-clinical interventions that enhance the quality of healthcare.

Invitees will be arriving in Malawi together as a group. While the whole group's departure dates could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
