Nurses are a unique kind. They have this insatiable need to care for others, which is both their
greatest strength and fatal flaw. -Dr. Jean Watson, RN, Doctor, Author and Professor
The New Hampshire Nurses Association (NHNA) has been busy planning a night to allow you to take time for yourself! Nurses from across the state will gather to refresh their spirit, feel the pride, and be inspired.
Refresh your spirit the first hour and enjoy the hors d’oeuvres prepared by the Currier’s chef with a beverage or two from the cash bar. You may wish to wander among the works of art (included in your ticket), network with your colleagues, and visit the tables of our sponsors and exhibitors.
Feel the pride of the nursing profession when NHNA President Carlene Ferrier presents NHNA’s Year in Review. Celebrate with the winners of the NHNA Awards presented by members of the Commission on Nursing Practice. Four awards will be given: Rising Star Award, Distinguished Member Award, Champion of Nursing Award and the President’s Award. President-Elect, Jan Deziel, will introduce the recipients of NHNA’s new 25-year membership award and each recipient will receive a special NHNA 25-year pin.
Be inspired by our keynote speaker Karen Daley, PHD, MPH, RN, FAAN. Karen is past president of the American Nurses Association, former director of the American Nurses Credentialing Center and an advocate for the prevention of needlestick injury in healthcare. She will share her inspirational career journey from an emergency room nurse for many years until sustaining a needlestick injury on the job in 1998 to nursing advocacy. If you have not had an opportunity to hear Daley speak before, do not miss this one. Contact hours will be awarded for this portion of the evening.
Nurses Night at the Museum is scheduled to occur after the NHNA Annual Membership Business Meeting (5:00-6: pm). At the membership meeting, members will discuss and vote on proposed bylaws changes, meet the winners of the 2019 elections and have an opportunity to ask questions regarding the annual reports from the NHNA President, the NHNA Treasurer and the Chairs of the Commission on Government Affairs, Commission on Nursing Practice and Commission on Continuing Education. All these reports will be posted to the NHNA website prior to the meeting for the members to review.
