NWone Regional Symposium – Oct 2019



NWone invites you to our Regional Fall Symposium:

Building the Next Generation of Nurse Leaders: The Art of Coaching, Mentoring & Sponsoring

Join us for a premier educational event designed for Nurse Leaders who share best practice and leadership strategies. Attendees can expect:

  • Expert presenters and faculty delivering up to date content
  • Earn accredited contact hours for the education presented
  • Connect and network with local, regional and state nurse leaders

The event will have a panel discussion, presenters and workshop-style breakout sessions with plenty of time to make connections and network.
Leave the event feeling inspired about using these techniques to build a solid and confident succession and legacy plan.

Attendees also have the opportunity to attend the Cleveland Visiting Scholar breakfast in celebration of Washington State University’s 50th anniversary. This event is free to attend and just 5 blocks away from the Davenport but does require a separate registration.
