Hosted online, you’ll leave each 30 minute session feeling a true sense of nursing connection that might have been missing from your professional life over the past few years.

Join us on May 13 for a day to celebrate solution-focused nursing as we host our 2015 Education Forum & AGM. With a maximum number of seats, we were at capacity last year so we encourage you to register early to come celebrate with us!

As part of the day, you’ll listen to 12 presenters and their perspectives on building and maintaining solution-focused approaches. Eleven of the presenter are real RNs and NPs from Nova Scotia with real solutions to nursing issues and we’re excited to listen, learn and celebrate ourselves as knowledge workers, each other as proud contributors and the profession as a strong, solution-focused leader in healthcare. Register for the day!
