Summit 2017 logo

The 2017 NLN Summit theme, "Our Community of Colleagues," represents the NLN vision of a nursing profession that embraces the connectedness of education and practice: faculty in the classroom and lab; interprofessional educators of physicians, pharmacists, physical therapists and others; preceptors and educators in our hospitals; nurses at the bedside, both new and experienced; and nurse administrators dealing with transition to practice challenges. Presenters and attendees, representing "our community of colleagues," share expertise and insight on topics that affect quality health care and reflect the League’s core values – caring, integrity, diversity, and excellence. Summit participants can earn up to 20 contact hours.

  • Explore the connectedness of nursing education and practice to form a vibrant and robust community of colleagues.

  • Discuss innovative and adaptive curricula that affect quality health care and reflect the League’s core values.
