March 03, 2017

 The Wisconsin Organization of Nurse Executives (WONE) will host their annual convention for current and aspiring nurse leaders and managers April 26-28 at The Glacier Canyon Lodge at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells. 

With a focus on its theme of “Transforming Health Care: Leaders making the impossible possible,” the convention will include a keynote presentation from Dr. Mark Taylor. Taylor is an award-winning speaker recognized internationally as an educator, expert and consultant who is at the forefront of transformation in educational practices and workplace management. His opening keynote will address the generational traits, issues and dynamics in the workplace with specific, immediately applicable suggestions for developing the most productive, positive and effective work setting for all workers.

This year’s agenda also focuses on a variety of health care management issues, including managing escalating situations, benefits of palliative care on the community, understanding how to maximize the role of independent APNPs, understanding HCAHPS survey results and ways to inspire hope and commitment resulting in renewed passion for care giving. 

The convention includes opportunities to network with other nurse leaders and managers. A full convention brochure is included in this week’s packet and is available online, along with online registration, at http://www.cvent.com/d/mvqfjn.

Anyone who has responsibilities for leading and managing RNs will benefit from the educational agenda and is welcome; you do not need to be an RN or a member of WONE to attend. For registration questions, contact Kayla Chatterton at 608-274-1820 or by email at kchatterton@wha.org.
