Reimagining Nursing from the Inside Out:

An Invitation to Reflect, Celebrate, Reimagine, and Transform

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.  We won’t be handing out magic wands, but we can promise you precious time to reflect on our personal and collective commitments and to strategize about how best to create a positive future for nursing and the communities we serve.  The journey begins with each us.

Upon completion of this conference, participants will be able to: 

1. Describe the essence of professional nursing and contemporary challenges to competent, compassionate, ethical practice.

2. Envision a personal and collective future for nursing practice that will stretch us to transform our practices, moral spaces, and work environments—Do I, do we, need to change and if yes, in what ways?

3. Newly value our obligation and capacity to care and to heal.

4. Assess the impact of practical strategies developed by nurse ethicists to address challenging work environments and others sources of fatigue, burnout, and moral distress.

5. Newly commit to three actions steps/leadership strategies, to transform our practices, ethical work environments and communities, to begin as soon as we return home.
