Mosaic, Northwest partnering to offer nursing conference April 7

Mosaic Medical Center-Maryville and Northwest Missouri State University nursing programs are partnering to host the inaugural Northwest Missouri Nursing Collaborative Conference.  

The conference on Thursday, April 7, at the Event Center at Mozingo Lake Recreation Park will feature keynote speaker Dr. Tim Crowley in addition to breakout sessions with other presenters.

Crowley has presented to Fortune 500 corporations, U.S. government agencies, small and mid-sized businesses and organizations, universities, schools, and non-profit agencies throughout the world. He will explore how grit, grace and gratitude can give people what they need to thrive during uncertain times.

The conference begins at 9 a.m. and continues to 4:45 p.m. for student nurses and until 7 p.m. for licensed and registered nurses.

Registration is $25 for student nurses and $125 for licensed and registered nurses. The cost includes breakfast and lunch for all attendees as well as dinner for licensed and registered nurses. Registration closes Friday, April 1.

“Living and working through a pandemic has not been easy for nurses from all areas,” said Dr. Brooke McAtee, a registered nurse and the director of the nursing programs at Northwest. “The development of this conference came from our need to ensure ongoing support and collaboration with our fellow nurses and students to aid our profession with its continued growth and support.”

McAtee added, “The theme of our conference is grit, grace, and gratitude, all characteristics nurses have shown throughout the last few years. Our goal is to provide nurses and students with the tools to aid in self-care while offering a day that encourages us to laugh and grow together as one group.”
