You are encouraged to explore the AONE Nurse Executive Competencies Review activity before you develop the
Improvement Plan In-Service Presentation. This activity will help you review your understanding of the AONE Nurse
Executive Competencies—especially those related to competencies relevant to developing an effective training
session and presentation. This is for your own practice and self-assessment, and demonstrates your engagement in
