Here are a few topics and speakers at this year's conference: Challenge of
Integrating Into the Professional Nurse Practice Role Marlene Kramer, PhD, MSN, RN,
This presentation focuses on challenges faced by NPD specialists in their role
of integrating new Clinical Nurses into the Professional Nurse Practice role.
Due to constant changes in patient and system complexity, analysis and
responses to these challenges must be frequently up-dated. Know the Mind, Know the
Learner: Applying Brain Science to Improve Training Art Kohn, PhD
We work hard to create great training, and we are disappointed when our
employees fail to learn. We may be tempted to blame our students, but the truth
is that we often fail because we don’t understand the mind of the learner. As a
result, we develop training that is not consistent with the brain’s natural
means of acquisition. Teaching should be more effective, and it can be more
effective, once we understand how the learner’s mind operates. Dr. Kohn's 20
years of experience will help you create training that will effectively engage
the brain and maximize learning and recall. Mirror,
Mirror, On The Wall: The Art of Engagement Begins With...You! Veda Andrus, EdD, MSN, RN,
HN-BC Providing high-level
professional development mentorship and coaching to nurses is essential to the
development of a high-performance workforce. Through mindful self-reflection
and self-awareness, we will use innovative stress management practices and
self-care techniques to enhance nurse resiliency and support engagement and
vitality in nursing practice. The
