Count on hearing some outstanding speakers. Faith Bresnan Roberts will open the conference with an inspiring and sure-to-be humorous look at nursing. Faith was so well received last year that she's returning to administer what nurses need now more than ever--multiple belly laughs. We're also proud to present Linda Aiken, a nurse researcher whose landmark piece in the Journal of the American Medical Association demonstrated how nurses and nurse/patient ratios impact patient care and mortality. Her latest research addresses how nursing education affects quality of care. At the program's close, inspirational speaker, artist, and visionary Eric Wahl will challenge you to think outside the box and shoot for the stars.
General sessions will focus on the latest advances affecting your work: nursing practice standards essential for high-quality patient care in such areas as I.V. therapy, pain management, wound care, infection control, and more. You'll also have the opportunity to explore the broader issues that influence our profession.
On Wednesday evening, you'll be able to spend some downtime chatting, getting to know other nurses, and enjoying refreshments at an informal networking session. You can also choose one of two optional Las Vegas shows offered at a discount rate (details on page xx).
The following organizations are again endorsing the symposium:
• Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses
• American Association of Critical-Care Nurses
• American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses
• Infusion Nurses Society
• Association of Vascular Access.
Along with support from these prestigious groups, we're proud to add endorsement by The John A. Hartford Foundation Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University, Steinhardt School of Education, Division of Nursing.
The Nursing2004 Symposium will be a winner if it helps you improve your patient care, broaden your horizons, reach new heights in career satisfaction, relax a little and, most of all, recognize the magnitude of your own potential. Consider signing up with your colleagues to take advantage of group discounts. Whether you travel with associates or on your own, you and other nurses will be embarking on a mission to learn, change practice, and reignite your passion for nursing.
Looking forward to seeing you in Las Vegas,
Cheryl L. Mee, RN,BC, MSN
Chairperson, Nursing2004 Symposium
