The Greater Kansas City Chapter wishes to recognize and honor these nursing heroes by sending several St. John’s Hospital critical care and progressive care nurses to the AACN National Teaching Institute (NTI) in Orlando, Florida May 20-24, 2012. By attending NTI, we hope these nurses will be uplifted, rejuvenated, and empowered to continue with their important work. Nominations are being accepted in Joplin and the selection process will be handled through the GKCC Board. Announcements will be made at the next 2012 Visions Symposium in Overland Park, Kansas.
Our Chapter has already pledged $5,000 towards this effort. We are presenting a challenge to individuals, other Missouri AACN Chapters, and all regional critical care and progressive care units to match our pledge with another $5,000 for a total of $10,000 in funds! We appreciate your efforts in getting the word out.
