NEW YORK NURSE: May 2011
Join your nurse colleagues in Niagara Falls for NYSNA’s Biennial Convention this Sept. 22-25 and get energized by “Healthcare: powered by nurses.”
Convention is the place to update practice knowledge, earn continuing education credits, make connections and voice your opinion on important association business. In addition to continuing education offerings, NYSNA members will have the opportunity to participate in association-wide meetings and other activities open to members only.
This year’s theme, “Healthcare: powered by nurses,” acknowledges the crucial role of nurses in healthcare delivery and embraces future demands on the profession. Linda Aiken, PhD, FAAN, FRCN, RN, a widely published nurse researcher, returns as the keynote speaker and will address the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s report on The Future of Nursing.
Convention attendees can stay at the Sheraton at The Falls, located directly across the street from the Convention Center. With beautiful Niagara Falls as a backdrop, we hope you will be inspired to harness the energy you share with patients and give some of it back to yourselves.
Activities and sessions are scheduled to help you improve your practice and recharge your batteries. You can choose from four continuing education tracks: Clinical Innovations, Contemporary Issues, Legislative Advocacy, and Professional Development. In your down time, enjoy networking with fellow nurses or celebrate your colleagues at the annual awards dinner.
Cost to attend at the full convention rate is $380 for members and $460 for non-members. Watch for more details to arrive in early summer.
