Save the Date on May 9 for our Nurses Week Roundtable!
Mark your calendar, because on Thursday, May 9, from 12:30 – 2 pm CST we’re hosting a special Nurses Week roundtable event via Facebook Live and we want you to be there! Dr. Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN, National League for Nursing (NLN) CEO, will be our special guest and will kick off the conversation with her vision of leadership in nursing, the power nurses have to care and how nurses put patients at the center of care.
Dr. Malone has been ranked amongst the top 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine on three occasions, was included as one of the Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine, and was the recipient of the 2018 Nursing Outlook Excellence in Research Award.
Roundtable host, Dr. Karen Cox, PhD, RN, FACHE, FAAN, Chamberlain University president, will be joined by moderator Dr. Roy L. Simpson DNP, RN, DPNAP, FAAN, FACMI, assistant dean of technology management and clinical professor, Emory University. Chamberlain students, alumni, faculty and partners will also join in on the conversation.
Dr. Simpson has been inducted as a Fellow into the esteemed American Medical College of Informatics. He also received the National Library of Medicine’s Nursing Informatics Award and Sigma Theta Tau’s Virginia K. Saba Award for his leadership in nursing informatics.
With our eyes set toward the future, Dr. Simpson will lead the roundtable discussion based with The Future of Nursing 2020 –2030 in mind. The Future of Nursing 2020 – 2030 is an ad hoc committee working to create a consensus report that will outline a path for nurses in the U.S. to help create a culture of health, reduce health inequalities, and advance the health and welfare of the U.S. population during the 21st century.
Of the current and future challenges highlighted by The Future of Nursing 2020 – 2030, the roundtable will address issues including obstacles to achieving a workforce that is diverse across all levels of nursing education and the training and competency-development necessary to prepare nurses for the workforce. In addition to this, conversation will also touch on the current and future placement of all levels of nurses across the care continuum and the current state of science and technology to meet the anticipated health and social care demands from 2020 to 2030.
From nurse readiness to diversity in nursing education, disparities in healthcare and technology’s capacity to meet anticipated health and social care demands, it is bound to be a great discussion!
We hope you can join us via livestream on Chamberlain’s Facebook page as we celebrate our hard-working students, dedicated faculty and extraordinary alumni this Nurses Week!
