NEW YORK NURSE: July/August 2011
Join your nurse colleagues for practical knowledge and camaraderie at NYSNA’s Convention in Niagara Falls, NY, Sept. 22-25!
This year’s theme is “Healthcare: powered by nurses.” Like the awe-inspiring power of Niagara Falls, NYSNA members continue to channel their strength to pursue legislative advocacy, enhance educational opportunities and share best practices for patient care. Convention 2011 is the place to gather to celebrate accomplishments and help set the agenda for nursing’s future.
NYSNA local bargaining unit members are invited to attend “Labor Day” events which focus on the issues that affect unionized registered nurses. Delegate Assembly members will meet to discuss the association’s union activities.
Continuing education credits can be earned at convention in the following four tracks of “Clinical Innovations,” “Contemporary Issues,” “Legislative Advocacy” and “Professional Development.”
When planning your convention schedule, consider some of these sessions and activities:
Make room in your schedule for convention favorites that include the Labor Day Unity Brunch, Nurses House “Fun Run” and the NYSNA awards banquet. For even more social fun, attendees can relax and enjoy a tour of the falls that includes a buffet dinner from a breathtaking view at Skylon Tower.
Watch for registration details to arrive in the coming weeks. We hope you plan to join us!
