It’s great to be back here in Boston, the city Oliver Wendell Holmes once called “the hub of the solar system.” This is one of America’s oldest and most historic cities, and with its blend of old-world charm and cutting-edge sophistication, it is surely one of our country’s shining jewels. So I hope you plan to have a lot of fun while you’re here. I know I plan to. There is lobster everywhere in this town — and it’s all good!
And with education, excellence and inspiration aligned with your needs, I guarantee you will have plenty of fun at this year’s NTI. I hope you’ll be Guided by your WHY to find the best educational opportunities for you, your co-workers and colleagues. In fact, I hope being at NTI 2018 gives you a chance to establish a deep and meaningful connection with the other exceptional nurses of our AACN community.
So let’s have some fun this week. Let this be a week to honor your WHY by renewing, recharging and restoring yourself. I hope NTI 2018 will be the hub of your solar system this week!
