"Riding the Waves of Change'' is a metaphorical expression that signifies the dynamic nature of the nursing profession and the need for nurses to adapt to and embrace the evolving healthcare landscape. "Educating Nurses: Riding the Waves of Change" refers to the challenges faced by nurse educators in preparing future nurses for our changing healthcare environments.


Healthcare environments are constantly evolving due to advancements in technology, changes in policies, emerging diseases, scientific advancements, and shifting patient demographics. As a result, nurses in all environments must continually update their knowledge, skills, and attitudes to meet these changing demands.  Those who educate nurses play a crucial role in equipping the nursing workforce with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to provide safe, effective, and person-centered care across a wide array of settings. As we all ride these waves of change, we must adopt mindsets of adaptability and resilience. As educators, we must foster these in our students and fellow nurses as well. The Nurse Educators Conference in the Rockies will help nurse educators tackle the metaphorical ocean of challenges that our role entails!


Join us for the 2024 Nurse Educators Conference in the Rockies as we foster our own ability to embrace change, think critically, and continuously engage in professional development!

Nurse Educators Conference in the Rockies 2023 attendees

Hear what some attendees say about NEC in the Rockies...

This was my first time attending Nurse Educator Conference in the Rockies. It is one of the best nurse educator conferences I have attended. The selection of sessions was excellent and it was hard to choose only one for each time slot. I appreciate having access to the notes from the other sessions. The conference was well organized and the staff was so helpful. Good selection of vendors. The cost is affordable compared to other conferences. I will be back!

Thank you for getting hospital educators and academics together to learn from one another as well as engage in meaningful conversations. What a GREAT conference!

This is my favorite nursing conference! Such a great balance of presenters and topics. Perfect size and location. Schedule is participant friendly.
