She has also toured internationally on several USO tours entertaining the troops in Europe, Asia, Iceland and the Pacific.

Nurse Educators Conference in the Rockies 2024 keynote speaker Nancy Norton

Nancy presents “The Power of Humor” which combines peer reviewed studies of empirical evidence with hilarious anecdotal evidence gathered from working as a Registered Nurse, along with growing up in a big Ozark family, the 4th of 3 children… who felt wanted, spending months in Nepal adopting her son and how humor helped her achieve a successful adoption and remain upbeat and resilient as a single “Stay AWAY from home mom.”
