The 2018 Tri-State Nurses on Boards Training Intensive in Branson was well-attended and successful. This work has been presented at the Sigma International Nursing Research Congress, Association of Public Health Nurses Annual Conference, Arkansas Public Health Association Annual Conference, and National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers Conference. Here are a few participant comments:
“I wanted to establish presence on a board I currently serve on. Before the training, I would bite my tongue. Now I have more confidence to speak up. I took away from the training the importance of nurses’ voices.”
“Learning about social determinants and culture of health opened my eyes…Helps me understand struggles and root causes for people and systems.”
“StrengthsFinder helped me to understand strengths of my colleagues…. how the combination of strengths and skills helps us to get things done!”
“I was able to look at my areas needing growth and how I can maximize my strengths.”
