Celebrating the Resilience of Nurses

The Virtual 2020 NBNA Annual Conference will celebrate nursing resilience as its theme, focusing on disruptions in practice, research, education, policy, and entrepreneurship:

“The frontline nurse champions show resilience through novel approaches to the nursing practice. ‘Disruptions’ or innovations demonstrate new concepts to deliver safe, high quality, patient-centered care while at the same time promoting nursing in a variety of areas, practice, research, education, policy, and entrepreneurship. The “disruptions” may offer better patient outcomes, lower costs to the health care system and offer the agility that nurses need to practice at their scope of practice and the top of their game.”

Some highlights of the upcoming event include discussing disruptive trends in financing and health care delivery, examining opportunities to impact the future of nursing, and identifying new models of care to reduce inequities in health care and health outcomes for minority and underserved communities.
