Our 2017 Educational Summit was a great success! On April 7, more than 100 nurses gathered at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe, NJ. The conference aimed to inspire grassroots nurses to use innovation as a strategy for defining new and current roles across the healthcare continuum.
Lynn Fick-Cooper’s keynote speech at our Educational Summit focused on self-care as an important component of resiliency.

Mary Ann Christopher, a Horizon Executive, spoke on the role of nurses in transforming the system of care.
Tiffany Kelley provided a personal account of her journey as a nurse entrepreneur. Every nurse has the potential to become a problem-solver because they can capitalize on their uniquely personal insight into the challenges of healthcare.
