Celebrating 125 Years of Leadership in Nursing Education
Join peers and thought leaders for the premier gathering of nurse educators at the 2018 NLN Education Summit, September 12 - 14, in Chicago, Illinois. In addition to networking and educational sessions, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to celebrate 125 years of NLN leadership creating and sustaining excellence in nursing education. A highlight of this year’s Summit will be visual displays of historic moments in the history of the NLN and presentations that feature how the NLN will continue to lead and shape nursing education for the future.

On the Shoulders of Giants: Building Innovation in Teaching Excellence
This year, in recognition of NLN leaders like Dr. Deborah Spunt, who led us to reform nursing education through simulation, the Spunt Lecture will focus on the impact simulation has had on building a culture of excellence in teaching. Dr. Sue Forneris will guide us in celebration of previous Spunt lecturers, leaders in simulation, and create a dialogue about the future role the NLN will take to transform teaching and learning, building on the extraordinary work of simulation’s pathfinders.
