    "This is a professional experience that changes your life and how you view your work. It is an arena where everyone attending loves what they do and loves caring for kids. A room full of great people with the same objective: to better ourselves and the world."

    "The conference renewed my sense of passion in the pediatric field. This conference also confirmed the approach I take at the bedside - to instill hope and to leave the patient feeling better about their situation than when I first came in the room." - Anna Folk

    "The SPN conference is a great opportunity to learn how to elevate the standards of Pediatric nursing practice. It's nice meeting nurses from across the country and seeing differences, but, most importantly, realizing how we are all similar. We are all united in providing children with the best nursing care possible. The conference is a great place to become rejuvenated and inspired to be the best possible Pediatric nurse." - Sarah B.
