Closing Keynote: Nurses Caring For Nurses: Changing the Culture of Nursing (105)

1CNE  In my 40+ years in nursing, I watched the nursing culture change, in some ways positively, in some ways, negatively.

Opening Keynote: Never Ever Give Up! (101)

1CNE  Erik Rees has dedicated himself to empowering people to find and fulfill their purpose in life. During this session Never Ever Give Up! Erik will share the story if his eleven-year-old daughter, Jessie, and her inspiring tale of spreading joy to other kids fighting cancer and encouraging them to never ever give up or "NEGU" while battling an inoperable and incurable brain tumor (DIPG). If you have faced a hurdle in life and thought about giving up, don’t miss this opportunity to be encouraged and inspired by Jessie’s daddy, Erik Rees, to NEGU. You will not only walk away inspired but receive practical tips to stay encouraged to NEGU no matter what you face at work or in life!
