I am pleased to invite you to the 2019 Kaiser Permanente National Nursing Leadership Conference. This annual conference, now in its tenth year, provides an opportunity for nurse leaders across the program to come together to network, celebrate excellence, share best practices and learn from national leaders in healthcare. The 2019 conference theme is: “Culture of Nursing Excellence: Celebrating our Legacy. Creating Our Future” and will be held May 14-15 at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, CA.
Grounded in the strong legacy of Kaiser Permanente Nursing, this event is designed to provide strategies to prepare KP nurse leaders to meet the challenges of the future. During two full days of informative and thought-provoking sessions, expert leaders will share perspectives on the future of healthcare and discuss the skills required to lead the nursing workforce in meeting the healthcare needs of patients, families, and communities.
As a registered conference attendee, you will have the opportunity to hear and learn from renowned leaders, attend breakout sessions designed specifically to further your professional development, and view informative posters showcasing proven strategies for successful implementation of evidence-based practices. Conference registration includes attendance at the annual awards luncheon where we honor KP’s Extraordinary Nurses and Outstanding Leaders; and attendance at the networking reception immediately following the first day’s educational sessions.
As nursing leaders, each of us plays a key role in engaging KP nurses in professional practice to ensure the delivery of “Extraordinary Nursing Care. Every Patient. Every Time.” I hope you can attend this year’s conference and return to your medical center with new skills and renewed energy enabling you to lead into the future!
Yours in Kaiser Permanente Nursing,
