The National League for Nursing
Eighth Annual NLN Technology Conference
Unleash the Power: Technology in Education and Practice
Thomas Jefferson University Jefferson School of Nursing
Philadelphia, PA
October 25-27, 2013


We are starting off the conference this year with our fast-paced IGNITE session. We hope this new format will "light your fire" for the programming that follows such as:
  • Dr. Diane Skiba's keynote on the opportunities and challenges of MOOCs
  • Dr. Diane Billings challenge to redesign the classroom
  • Dr. Janet Willhaus' update on the NCSBN simulation study
  • Dr. Judy Warren's report on federal informatics initiatives
  • Dr. Helen Connors' plenary on the impact that telehealth is making on health care.

The conference also offers a variety of concurrent sessions including integrating tablet computing into the curriculum, IPE collaboration with TeamSTEPPS, the TIGER Virtual Learning Environment, EHRs, and telehealth applications.

Sessions on simulations will cover how it is being used to promote critical thinking in NPs, the new ACES unfolding cases for veterans and patients with Alzheimer's, and tours of Jefferson's simulation centers.

Our popular open discussion forums or "unconferences" are also on the agenda. All of these exciting sessions will keep you current and spark new ideas so you can better prepare your students to function in today's technology-rich health care environments.

Objectives

  • Examine the impact of MOOCs on higher education in general, and nursing programs in particular.
  • Summarize new findings about the use and impact of simulation as a teaching, learning, and assessment strategy.
  • Explain federal and state initiatives in meaningful use of health care technology and its implications for nursing education.
  • Plan strategies to promote the use of technology as a tool for improving competencies in interprofessional education and collaborative practice.
  • Discuss the goals and outcomes of the HRSA-funded HITS collaborative (schools of nursing at Kansas University, University of Colorado Denver, Indiana University, Johns Hopkins University, and the NLN).
  • Describe collaborative use of mobile technology and telehealth to manage client care and improve client outcomes.
  • Incorporate best practices in the use of technology into classroom and clinical experiences.
  • Incorporate best practices in the use of technology into classroom and clinical experiences.
