See Your Colleagues in the Spotlight at the 45th Annual Course
The 45th SGNA Annual Course is just days away, and in addition to the numerous growth opportunities available at the event, you will have the chance to view an exclusive project some of your colleagues have been working on. Hear them share their stories on how they have been, and are continuing to be, the sparks within their organizations, and forging the path for all GI nurses who come after them.
Let the SGNA Annual Course inspire you to take your career to the next level and find your inner spark. It was shown in the results of The Future of Nursing study by the Institute of Medicine that in order to respond to increasing demands of the American health care system, nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education system that promotes seamless academic progression. The higher levels of education and training should include a transition into higher degree programs such as going from licensed practical nurse to bachelor’s degree, masters, PhD and doctor of nursing practice degrees.
“Nurses should be educated with physicians and other health professionals both as students and throughout their careers in lifelong learning opportunities,” the study states. “The United States has the opportunity to transform its health care system, and nurses can and should play a fundamental role in this transformation.”
The SGNA Annual Course is a wonderful opportunity to continue your path of lifelong learning, as well as help achieve a strong future for GI nurses by lighting up the future of the industry with knowledge, experience and a strong team.
Be sure to join us on Tuesday, May 22 at 2:45 p.m. for the closing ceremony in Orlando to see your colleagues shine.
