Neuroscience Nursing Symposium

Course Goal

Participants will come eager to collaborate and connect and learn the latest developments in neurosciences. This year marks the 41st Barrow Neuroscience Nursing Symposium title.

Ignite, Innovate, and Integrate. Burnout among nurses is a known problem at many institutions. It is our hope that the sessions at this year’s symposium will ignite or reignite our shared passion for nursing, reminding us of the joys inherent in our chosen profession.

We will offer educational sessions on innovations in nursing and beyond, because we believe that nurses are true innovators who see gaps in practice and come up with creative ways to fill them. Finally, attendees at this year’s symposium will carry the messages back to their institutions to integrate learning into their own nursing practices.
