Here’s what nurses are saying:

  • “The summit content [had a] good range of relevant topics. I also liked short break between each presentation.”
  • “[The best part was] the humor that was brought in so many lectures. I was not expecting to laugh so much, but it makes the learning more enjoyable and more realistic for those of us who try to find the light side of things.”
  •  “This was the first one I have been able to attend. I have been a nurse for over 10 years and I was very impressed with all of the speakers. Having Barb be the end speaker was wonderful and she had everyone laughing and having such a great time but learning so many things at the same time as well.”
  • “I think this was the best Summit that I ever attended. I will put this on my planner for next year for sure.”
  • “The speakers were outstanding!”“[The best part was the] variety of topics presented. It was nice that some Public Health perspective/topics were included.”
  • “[The best part was the] collaboration that occurs when you interact with other nurses from a variety of disciplines.”
  • “The whole summit was great. Probably one of the best nursing conferences that I ever attended. This is because you covered extremely current topics and had the finest speakers to discuss this with us. The speakers were engaging and really knew their material. Wonderful.”
