Sharpen your executive edge...
...at the Executive Track of Congress2011, in fabulous Las Vegas, October 24 to 28. Sponsored by Wolters Kluwer Health|Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, publisher of Nursing Management journal, Congress2011 tailors information for CNOs, CNEs, VPs, and DONs. Executive Track topics include variance justification, never events, healthcare reform, information technology, and evidence-based practice. Congress2011 Keynote Speaker Tim Porter O’Grady will discuss the necessary transformation of healthcare leadership, which will help you begin to write your own script for the future.
A poor economic outlook, growing concerns about the cost of healthcare, rising Magnet® expectations, the Institute of Medicine’s Future of Nursing report, and looming legislative changes are destined to change the manner in which we deliver care. This perfect storm is highly likely to result in major changes to how we lead. Congress2011 will provide insight into the future while still delivering practical suggestions for productive daily practice.
