Before I share the details with you …
let’s hear what some of last year’s 2,600+ participants had to say:
Number of Organizations
Twelve 30-minute Webinars
The Art of Nursing program features the finest nursing experts across the country. Each faculty member is carefully selected, based on their area of expertise. Your nurses will learn from 12 nurse leaders on various topics pertaining to Leadership, Communication, Technology and Self-Care.
Four 30-minute Evening Wrap-Up Calls
Each evening, participants are able to join a conference call and debrief the video webinars of that day. Participants have a chance to review key themes, share insights, and ask questions on the daily topics.
Conference PDF Workbook
Each participant will receive their very own copy of the complementary workbook. Inside they will find handouts, self-reflective exercises, articles and much more that supplements what they learn via the videos and conference calls.
Bonus Materials and Goodies
There are several opportunities for participants to receive bonus gifts during the week. While these are kept surprise as a means to share an extra ‘treat’, you can imagine things like audio meditations, print books, and much more will be gifted to your nursing staff.
And there’s more!
As an added bonus, The Art of Nursing applies to the Maryland Nurses Association (an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation) for CNE hours for participants.
For the past 3 years, The Art of Nursing has been successful in their application to award contact hours for completing the Art of Nursing to those participants who request it.

How would you rate the overall program?
Was the program well organized?
Did the program meet with your expectations?
Thank you so much for offering The Art of Nursing. You advertise ‘Keeping Pace with the Profession’- my comment is that The Art of Nursing exceeds the pace the nursing. It was truly an exceptional program. If I had my way I would make it mandatory for all nurses. I was able to learn about current and future trends in nursing. I gained insight into areas of nursing that I am unfamiliar with and found out we share many similarities. I am looking forward to 2017 and will keep telling all my colleagues and leadership team about it.
