Then, because so many people were coming and going…, he said to them,
“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”
   Mark 6:31- 33

DESCRIPTION: East Texas NCF invites nurses, educators, and students to the Piney Woods for a weekend of rest and refreshment. The spiritual dimension is a major healing force for ourselves and our patients, and we can experience spiritual renewal through teaching, personal study, and discussion. The retreat will provide the opportunity for you to grow deeper with God, apply biblical principles to your life, and discover how rest and reflection can transform your nursing practice. Take time away from the busyness of life and work and refresh your joy in nursing and your soul!

Ethics Conference5th National Nursing Ethics Conference

Reimagining Nursing from the Inside Out: An Invitation to Reflect, Celebrate, Reimagine, and Transform

DATES:  March 7-9, 2018

LOCATION: Luskin Conference Center, UCLA, Los Angeles, California

DESCRIPTION:  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.

SPONSORED BY the National Nursing Ethics Conference, which aims to empower nurses to engage in complex, ethical challenges of care to effect needed change and to affirm the mutually enriching qualities of patient-family-caregiver encounters.
