Top 4 Sessions to Attend at the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE)

Plan ahead to make the most of your time at the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) Conference

Each year, thousands of nurse leaders travel from around the country to attend the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) Annual Conference. This year, the conference is being held in sunny San Diego from April 10-13, where attendees will be able to network, listen to educational speaking sessions, and visit healthcare vendors.

We’re excited to exhibit and talk with such an impressive and inspiring group of caregivers. We’ll be showcasing some exciting new nurse-specific solutions including integrated nurse-call capabilities, single sign-on, and virtual care and rounding. To see our clinical communication solution in action, stop by booth 340 or schedule a short 15-minute demo with one of our clinical communication experts. Schedule your demo in advance to get your free eco-friendly glass water bottle and entry into our drawing for a Tiffany necklace.

In addition to all the activity on the exhibit floor, you won’t want to miss out on the best sessions. We did our homework and uncovered four sessions we highly recommend putting on your “must see list.” Here they are in no particular order:
