Join NCSBN in Chicago to “Formulate Strategy & Align Influence” this year’s theme at our Annual Meeting.

Along with a variety of presentations and activities, NCSBN will host two exciting keynote speakers. Our first is Elizabeth Iro, RN, chief nursing officer at the World Health Organization, who was formerly the Cook Islands’ Secretary of Health and chief nursing officer and acting director, Hospital Health Services. Iro will give an address based on this year’s theme.  
Our second keynote, Erik Wahl is a recognized artist and business strategist who “challenges organizations to break free from the chains of business as usual” by using the story of his life as both an artist and a businessman.

You will want to experience both speakers as well as have the opportunity to network with your fellow nursing regulators from across the globe during this year’s meeting.
