Nursing is a profession filled with wisdom and expertise. Yet, for too long we’ve attempted to fix problems like staff turnover and burnout with the same mindset that created them. NOW is the time for change. NOW is the time for some fun, creative, out-of-the-box thinking!
The Art of Nursing is a digitally packaged, online conference that provides busy nurses with leadership skills, communication techniques, clinical trends, coping and self-care, and more!
It’s an exclusive gathering of nurse educators, speakers, and consultants with specific knowledge and expertise to help your nursing team get back to the healing, patient-focused practice envisioned by Florence Nightingale.
The Art of Nursing Covers Three Key Areas
Your nurses will learn to communicate more effectively with their patients and colleagues so they can delegate appropriately and know how to handle difficult conversation.
Nurses will discover how to show up as effective leaders at work. They will be more confident in the workplace and feel inspired about the role they play in the healthcare system.
Health and Wellness
Nurses will gain valuable tools to decrease stress and improve their health. This leads to less turnover and burnout, and helps you employ a more energized workforce.
