Thursday, April 13, 2023 9:00 am – 10:45 am Nurses as Healthcare Changemakers: Stories of Care Transformation Every day, nurses identify problems and create solutions for some of the biggest challenges in health care. With invaluable hands-on patient experience, insights, resourcefulness and an innate innovative mindset, nurses are uniquely qualified to reimagine what healthcare can be, and how it can best be delivered.
For more than 125 years, Johnson & Johnson has championed and supported nurses as changemakers – essential to the work of transforming human health. In this empowering storytelling session, hear from nurses and nurse leaders who represent different perspectives on nurses’ pivotal role in healthcare and the enormous potential of the profession to rethink how healthcare is organized and delivered to improve health outcomes for all. Hear from an ER nurse who developed a screening protocol to identify victims of human trafficking, a trauma nurse who created a tech platform to connect medically tailored meals to the dietary needs of patients experiencing food insecurity, and a nurse/chief experience officer for a health system who is building trust and connections in a rural community. Each of these powerful stories demonstrates the scope and impact of nurse influence, and how important they are to shaping patient care and tailoring healthcare to the needs of their communities.

Friday, April 14, 2023 Plenary Session: Different Times…Different Perspectives…Different Partners 9:00 am – 10:45 am In this plenary, the speakers will make the case that our profession is practicing, teaching, conducting research and dealing with policies in a time like no other. One of the highlights and perhaps most important lessons in this different time is the need to actively collaborate with our partners across disciplines while bringing to the table our nursing perspective and respecting the differences due to diverse backgrounds and ways of being. As a profession, we must continue our work together to advocate and abolish inequities across the healthcare arena. Our reflection must continue to be our catalyst for change, as we challenge and impact the world around us. We must let our past inform us and yet move forward as we advocate for the future. Patient and workforce safety depend upon us doing so. The collective future depends on healthy relationships. Moderators: G. Rumay Alexander, EdD, RN, FAAN, Professor and Associate Dean- UNC-Chapel Hill, Past President, The National League of Nursing, and ANA Scholar-in-Residence-National Commission Addressing Racism in Nursing.
