Having the tools to succeed as a CNO and executive nurse leader is paramount in today’s environment.  Team cohesion, structure and nursing staff performance are just a few of the key areas a nurse leader has to manage.

The core objectives for CNO’s have not changed over the years: improve quality of care, patient safety, and the patient experience; reduce cost; and develop a strong leadership team.  What has changed, though, are the tools, skills, and information needed to achieve these objectives.  The QHR CNO Conference will focus on providing executive nurse leaders with the contemporary tools and information needed to manage the changes taking place in the industry and the challenges affecting their organization today and in the future. You will learn how to develop your clinicians, measure your clinical teams’ performance, engage physicians as partners, efficiently deliver care, drive quality improvement, and more.

  • Staff Retention
  • Nursing Leadership and Affecting Change
