Welcome to Tampa, FL and the 13th Annual Nursing Organizations Alliance Fall Summit!
As summer slips into autumn and another school year starts up, many of us begin to think of the upcoming holiday season….and attending the Nursing Organizations Alliance Fall Summit!
Your Coordinating Team and staff have been hard at work all year preparing an exciting meeting here in Tampa, FL. What a great place to network with colleagues, get energized about our profession, maybe get in some holiday shopping, and catch a few rays of warm sunshine – just in time to get back for Thanksgiving!
The agenda for this year’s meeting is packed with exciting speakers, more networking time, a huge lineup of exhibitors all in a great location. Hear Rich Bluni, author of Inspired Nurse and Inspired Journal, Shira Harrington talk about “higher purpose," Linda Burnes Bolton President-elect of AONE, and Rich Sheridan, author of Joy, Inc.
Our panel of Living Legends: Polly Bednash, Wanda Johanson, Karen Peddicord and Paula Rieger will share their knowledge and discuss their work with their national nursing organizations over the course of their careers.
Along with our other programs: the March Nurse in Washington Internship (NIWI), our August Nursing Alliance Leadership Academy (NALA) and our informative webinars, the Alliance is here for you. Our purpose is to provide a forum for identification, education, and collaboration building on issues of common interest so Alliance member organizations can advance the nursing profession in a cohesive way. For those who are joining us for the first time – a special WELCOME. We hope you all enjoy the meeting!
