Webinar and Group Meeting Activities

Posted about 5 years ago by Robert Metzger

There are a couple of events I’d like to announce to everyone that are being held this month in relation to what role NPs play in the care of patients.

The first is on August 8th and is being held by the American Nurse Practitioner Foundation. It relates to the following:

Please join the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action a Webinar on

“Patient Advocates: A Powerful Nurse Practitioner Resource” 

Thursday, August 8, 2013 | 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. CDT

This webinar, offered by the American Nurse Practitioner Foundation features Regina Holliday, caregiver, patient advocate and artist. Holliday tells a personal story in words and art across the U.S. and globally. She sends a powerful message about patient rights, the healthcare system and needed change. She will change your view of patient relationships. Susan Hassmiller, PhD, RN, FAAN, Senior Advisor for Nursing, is responsible for addressing nurse and faculty shortages in an effort to create a higher quality of patient care in the U.S. at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. She is also the Director of the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action. Dr. Hassmiller will share how focusing on patient centered messaging can have an impact on changing legislation by addressing: scope of practice, prescriptive authority and reimbursement.
