To date there have been more than twenty Institute's offered to our organization giving staff the opportunity to be exposed to a number of our country's leading nurse experts. One of the key challenges facing nurses is finding time to attend and participate in one time grand rounds or seminars, which is why The Institute uses a variety of venues for learning. Institute events reach 150 - 400 nurses depending on the invited expert and their topic.
