World-renowned experts will fill you in on all that's exciting in nursing and patient care delivery, while memorable tributes that commemorate all we experienced together at last year's Congress on September 11 touch your heart. We'll meet you "Deep in the Heart of Leadership" in Dallas! To register, call 1-800-346-7844 ext.7798.


"More so than at any time in recent memory, the focus in hospitals is on the nurse manager role and its impact on staff retention, interdepartmental teamwork, and patient/physician satisfaction. Managers have always been the key link, and now their effectiveness is in the spotlight. This is the time for managers to come together, identify best practices, share lessons learned, and benefit from the most dynamic Congress yet!"


"With the critical issues regarding resource availability, evidence-based practice, quality assurance, and crisis and change management, this year's Nursing Management Congress is essential. The best thinkers and movers in the industry will be there with insights and innovations for the new world of health care. With all that's impacting your leadership, can you really afford to miss Congress this year?"
