A Message from Our President

Welcome!  I am grateful to be part of an amazing organization and to have the opportunity to serve as your President.  As we slowly and cautiously emerge from the shadow of the pandemic, we recognize and celebrate you and all that nursing has contributed and sacrificed in this global effort.  We look forward to seeing each other in person once again to share our ideas, experiences, stories, and knowledge.  I encourage you to take advantage of the many educational and other activities that we have planned throughout the year highlighted by our Trends in Clinical Informatics conference to be held in May.  Please take the time to explore what we have to offer, and we look forward your involvement in all our activities throughout the year.
