A. Nurse Educators - Leaders and Citizens of our Global Village Harnessing Passion, Potency and Power in their Significant Roles
Presenters: Rebekah O'Rourke, BA, MapSc. (France) - Janice Brewington, PhD, RN, FAAN - Katherine Harding, PsyD
This systemic experiential learning event (SELE) will work in real time to explore and transform how nurse educators engage as citizens in multiple interconnected systems and roles. Exploring the key principles of emergent co-creation through experience, we will discover and reveal how purpose, passion and potency are the energy source that fuels our capacity to engage with the multiple federal, state, public, private and philanthropic organizational systems that is a significant context within which nurse educators work. Mobilizing personal and collective authority we find the freedom to influence, shape and deliver, with clarity of intention and purpose, nurse educators fit for and in service of the nation's health and wellbeing. SELE will appeal to nurse educators who are tired of doing what they have always done and who deeply know and feel that there are more effective ways of achieving what they passionately feel nursing education needs. This session will also appeal to nurse educators who have the courage to challenge assumptions, are open to new ways of thinking about old issues, and have the conviction to take the necessary steps to realize the outcomes they personally and collectively desire.
