“Loved learning about new innovations, different ways of transforming curricula, and networking with peers from across the country.”

“The opening plenary was the best I've ever been to at a nursing education conference. The topic was positive, hopeful, and relevant to what we do. Very inspiring and motivational!”

“I truly enjoyed being a part of Transform and cannot wait to share some of the things I learned with my colleagues.”

“I love the different delivery options, some shorter podium sessions, some longer with all participants, and some interactive hour-long sessions we could choose from. I really enjoyed the first time meet and greet; I came alone so it was great to meet others.”
