Thank you for joining us in 2021 for our virtual programming & our return to the in-person Copper conference! Stay tuned on this website for 2022 information & updates! 

2021 Information

Nurse Educators are constantly being bombarded with new information, technologies and techniques on how to provide content(instruction)to students.  It becomes a daily challenge to decipher what is essential for student learning and how best to facilitate it. Even in the seemingly less-complex world of yesteryear, precious pearls for today’s nurse educators can be gleaned.  Skill building sessions, poster, panels presentation and lectures will be presented in a very interactive, hands-on manner.  You will leave this conference full of ideas to share and implement within your own academic environments!



  1. Provide a forum for nurse educators to develop new skills, demonstrate best practices, exchange lessons learned, share current evidence-based research, and discover valuable resources.

  2. Offer a multi-disciplinary conference program that encompasses the broad aspects of nurse education.

  3. Stimulate innovation in nurse education.

  4. Encourage networking.
