“What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.”
Reimagining Nursing from the Inside Out is the theme for the 5th Ethics of Caring® National Nursing Ethics Conference (NNEC). An Invitation to Reflect, Celebrate, Reimagine, and Transform. Calling all nurses and our colleagues. In our heart of hearts, we chose to work in healthcare professions quite literally to make the world a better place by helping those in need. We have all experienced the deep sense of fulfillment and joy that accompanies our being present, in competent and compassionate ways, at the most vulnerable times for our patients and their families. Many are finding it increasingly difficult to renew our energies for healing as we meet the dynamic and complex challenges of health care today.
Join national nursing ethics leaders as we reflect on and celebrate the best of nursing's historical commitment to the sick, suffering, and dying and reimagine the power of 21st century nursing unleashed in our troubled world. Think about these two days as an ethics retreat. We won't be handing out magic wands, but we can promise you precious time to reflect on our personal and collective commitments and to strategize about how best to create a positive future for nursing and the communities we serve. The journey begins with each of us.
