Nurse Educators Conference in the Rockies
The Nurse Educators Conference was established in 1989 by the Centennial Area Health Education Center as an event where Nursing professors could learn about the more practical applications of teaching. University of Northern Colorado and Front Range Community College were at the forefront in assisting the office in developing this conference that can provide nurse educators with the latest tools to teach their students. Not only has this event come a long ways from attendees sleeping on bunk bed at the YMCA camp in Estes Park, but the latest and greatest tools have as well. This conference is a great resource for many of the educators who return every year!
NEC in the Rockies provides a unique opportunity to review the historical relevance of nursing education, to understand and appreciate it as we head into a dynamic future. The Nurse Educator Conference in the Rockies will highlight some of the challenges and opportunities for using our history to better understand our present and create a preferred future.
