Inspire. Innovate. Influence.
2018 Annual Convention - October 24th & 25th
Hyatt Regency Hotel - Tulsa, OK.
Registration now open!
The Oklahoma Nurses Association is pleased to present the 2018 Annual Nurses Convention at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 24th and 25th, Empowering Nurses: Inspire. Innovate. Influence. During this two-day convention, we will explore action-based solutions to empower nurses in their practice areas.
Our focus on Wednesday will be to localize ANA’s #EndNurseAbuse initiative by focusing on violence against nurses in the workplace. Nationally, 1 in 4 nurses have experienced some kind of workplace violence. We know this is happening in Oklahoma. This must stop and ONA must be part of the solution. Our day will start with a panel of nurse leaders sharing their solutions to #EndNurseAbuse. We hope that you will join us to share and discuss this important issue so that we can develop solutions together.
Thursday’s focus will tackle the issues of health disparities in our state. Our opening session will include the short documentary film, Clinica de Migrantes, followed by a panel of nurse leaders who deliver care to populations facing health disparities. Presentations following the opening session will not only highlight health disparities, but also staffing, workplace violence and other issues facing nurses in their day to day practice. We want to empower nurses in their practice areas and communities with action-based solutions.
