What is NEC?

The NEC in the Rockies brings together nurse educators from around the nation to develop new skills, demonstrate best practices, exchange lessons learned, share current evidence-based research, and discover valuable resources. 

The theme of the 30th Annual Nurse Educators Conference in the Rockies is Pearls of Wisdom: 30 years of Education.

During our time together we empower nurse leaders with tools and practical, hands-on solutions that can be implemented in their work.
