 Annual Meeting - Saturday 8 am - noon - All are welcome to attend.  Members are encouraged to attend this meeting!

NDNA Healthy Nurse Conference will educate on gaps in self-care practices. An exploration of various modalities and experiential opportunities will be offered that can help support our own wellness so that we, in turn, can share that w/ others.  Finding balance in our life and creating healing environments in the workplace and beyond can help to reduce the incidence of compassion fatigue and burnout which is so commonly seen in the health profession.
