41st Annual National Conference on Professional Nursing Education & Development
Leading Reform and Advancing the Science of Nursing Education
Rochester, Minnesota | October 2-5, 2014

Co-provided by: Mayo Continuing Nursing Education, and the American Nurses Credentialing Center in Cooperation with the Professional Nurse Educators Group (PNEG)

Overview & Target Audience

For four decades, this conference has been offered in collaboration with the Professional Nurse Educators Group (PNEG) and has served as a prominent vehicle for educators from the United States and other countries to strengthen their roles through learning, sharing, and networking with professional colleagues.  Those involved with education in schools of nursing, continuing education, staff development, and entrepreneurs will find this meeting advantageous.

Start making plans to join us in the Land of Oz for 3-1/2 days of mind-stretching, heartwarming and courageous programming. Like Dorothy and her team, bring your brains, heart and courage as we explore what is required to continue the transformation taking place in health care and assure nursing’s capabilities for future education and practice.


At the completion of this conference participants should be able to:

      • Discuss critical issues and concerns facing professional nursing education and development.
      • Explore how those in education and practice can successfully sustain competent learners and practitioners.
      • Develop practical strategies for effectively managing the challenges encountered in the work environment.
      • Network with colleagues in academic, staff development and continuing education roles.
