SEMNSDO Affiliate Annual Fall Conference:

Energizing Nurse Educators
October 20, 2017 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Warren, Michigan

Bindon, DNP, RN-BC, CNE is an assistant professor at the Institute for Educators at University of Maryland School of Nursing, and is the 2016-2017 AACN Excellence and Innovation in Teaching Award winner. She maintains her faculty practice in Nursing Professional Development (NPD) with the University of Maryland Medical Center, is an NLN Certified Nurse Educator, and is ANCC certified in NPD.  She also currently serves as Co-Editor of the Journal for Nurses in Professional Development. Susan has served as an academic accreditation site visitor and on the ANPD Board of Directors. She has authored peer-reviewed articles and book chapters and presents widely on issues related to teaching and learning.

Conference Overview: What keeps nurse educators energized and engaged?  They are productive, creative and determined. Their wide-ranging expertise  influences bedside practice and boardroom decisions.  They are committed to helping others and making a difference-sometimes at a moment’s notice.  Functioning at such a high level requires super-human strength and stamina!  Nursing professional development (NPD) educators need to recharge and energize themselves to do this important work. 

This conference will help provide that spark as participants reflect on their practice and hone their consulting skills.  Attendees will recharge their professional battery packs and reconnect with the foundations of NPD. They will stretch their creative muscles by developing energizing formulas and sharing them in their unique voices.
