Nursing Summit

Kelly CrumRegardless of where we practice, the positions we hold, or the patients we see, we make decisions that are instructed by our ethics. Our choices are played out in the lives we touch every day—an overwhelming responsibility.

For our first nursing summit, we have brought together knowledgeable speakers who will help us navigate the treacherous waters of ethics. Join us as we examine the need to anchor our ethics and calibrate our choices according to a higher standard.

We hope to see you soon.
