NJCCN Educational Summit 2017

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. The high stakes of nursing professions pose risk of mental exhaustion and burn-out. It is so important to remember that we cannot effectively manage other people’s wellness unless we prioritize our own mental and physical health.

Laurie Haworth and Liz Klingensmith from Mercy Virtual presented advancements in the role of virtual nursing. They demonstrated that virtual nursing isn’t about replacing the bedside nurse – it’s about providing an extra layer of support and communication to increase monitoring of vitals, ease communication with patients, and improve the quality of care.

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.
