Featured Speakers at the 2018 GNSA Conference

The keynote session will feature Alex Wubbels, who will focus on moral courage and share her story as she advocated for her patient in the face of extreme pressure from local law enforcement. Sessions are geared towards further development of nursing graduates who will transition into roles of teaching, practice, and leadership as well as highlight innovation, mentoring, and health policy. The closing session will feature Dr. Angela Patterson, Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer at CVS MinuteClinic and Vice President of CVS Health, who will share the vision of CVS Health but also discuss how nurses are at the forefront of making an impact in our nation’s health care. Ensure that your students don’t miss this opportunity to enrich themselves in this learning environment and further develop as the leaders of tomorrow.
