Providing comprehensive, high quality nursing healthcare requires significant knowledge, skills, and collaboration.  The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic highlight the need for healthcare professionals across the world to share experiences and lessons learned as we continue to face uncertainty.  The NH 2021 conference will provide participants the ability to collaborate with multi-national colleagues and the opportunity to benefit from new and developing strategies in healthcare, health education and health technology.  As healthcare professionals continue to endure, recover, and plan for the “new normal” post-COVID-19, the NH 2021 will provide healthcare professionals with the critical knowledge and skills necessary to meet the increasing complexity of patient care while caring for their own well being.   Nursing and clinical best practices and effective self-care strategies that were implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic will be presented.

Who Should Attend?

Nurses, clinical educators, nursing students, interdisciplinary healthcare professionals, and healthcare leaders.
