2nd Annual International Research Symposium

Just like this past year – presentations will be short (15-20 minutes) and focus on neuro-nurse-research. The symposium will cover the research spectrum and include 1. Planned proposals and ideas 2. Works in progress 3. Works in data analysis or manuscript preparation phase 4. Completed research studies We are looking for speakers. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to cover expenses nor provide honoraria. If you or a nurse you know has work – this will be a great venue. We will be sending out a call for poster abstracts (we hope you keep this in mind for students and trainees with research work in neuro). Just as the symposium covers works in progress and completed works, posters will be allowed to include WIPs and Completed studies.

2017 Congress-Great success!

With the help of Dubrovnik Sun, WFNN held an outstanding congress in the beautiful city of Opatija in Croatia. International speakers, great food, beautiful hotels and an even better coastline.

Our day trips to the old cities were well organized and thoughtful. Our tour guides spoke of Croatian history, exposing the group to the local cuisine and wines as we meandered the streets.

The Congo line, singing by Stephen, our own WFNN Elvis Presley topped off the fun Gala dinner.

Nights to remember.

Our President wins Magnet Nurse of the Year!!

The American Nurses Credentialing Center National Magnet Nurse of the Year® awards recognize the outstanding contributions of clinical nurses for innovation, consultation, leadership and professional risk-taking. Awards are presented in each of the five Magnet® Model components: Transformational Leadership; Structural Empowerment; Exemplary Professional Practice; New Knowledge, Innovations and Improvements; and Empirical Outcomes.

This is what they said about Christi... Christi DeLemos' contribution to new knowledge and innovation is exemplified by her development of a mobile application designed for nurses who care for patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury and other neurological impairments. The goals of the app are to enhance bedside care through instant access to neuroscience nursing information, and to increase nursing confidence when caring for neurological patients. The mobile app was developed over a one-year period, and was reviewed by an international committee of nurses. Launched in 2015, the free Neuroscience Nurse mobile app has been downloaded by more than 1,700 users in 19 countries. A committed educator, she also produced and directed a 30-minute professional teaching video that has been translated into 10 languages and distributed in eight countries worldwide.

We are so very proud of you. You are an inspiration!
