INPD Spring Meeting

We had a lovely breakfast meeting at the Little America coffee shop. Thanks to everyone who made it. Here are the notes from the meeting:

Fall Conference (Sept? Oct? Location?)
Speaker: Greg Durkin – “How to Enjoy Your Job” Presentation
  • Consensus to have Greg come
Conference, Education Ideas: 
  • Telehealth
  • Quality related/evidence based practice (How to drive)
  • Have a presentation of educator’s evidence based practice projects
  • Paula Julander – Politics
  • Legal Ramifications, litigation against nurses, have a nurse lawyer come
  • Informal leader as an educator
  • Motivating and influencing people
  • Send an inquiry out of members who want to be on the conference committee:
    • Annette Welch would like to be included
    • Susan Peterson – Lone peak as well
  • Suzanne Carlisle will make a quilt to raffle off
  • Come up with a list of conference objects and a target audience
  • Possibly extend an invitation to any Clinical educator, not necessarily nurses
  • Have Annette present her ANPD National Conference Presentation – Facilitating Facilitators
Other ideas: 
  • Have more often at Little America – have people pay their own way
  • Bring back a service project 
  • Send group a directory of INPD members with contact information 
  • Send a link to the INPD blog
  • Add the list serves as a reference on the blog
  • There is a concern if we have more ANPD certified Professional Development Specialists, how can they get more CEU’s to maintain certification
  • Host ANPD webinars for the group
  • Friday mornings still work best for most

We will definitely plan more meetings at Little America. It was fun! 
If you have any comments or concerns, please let us know!
