    Fantastic conference for students and educators. Honestly, some of the most professional nursing students I've ever met

    I attended the 1982 NSNA convention in Minneapolis. Meetings with professional nurses and educators there started my interest in nursing activism.
    Attended NSNA conference in Reno with Allnurses few years ago, pleasure to talk with students from across the US and give them advice regarding nursing careers outside the hospitals walls.

    Along with AACN's National Teaching Institute, best $$ spent investing in my nursing career.
