Nursing Summit

 

In 2004, Catskill Hudson AHEC presented its first “Nursing Summit” to nurse administrators and nurse educators who wished to work together and with Catskill Hudson AHEC to promote the profession of nursing in New York State.  Since then, Catskill Hudson AHEC’s Nursing Summit has attracted all levels of the nursing profession, as well as healthcare professionals, health professions educators, and health professions students by providing an educational forum to explore topics of relevance and critical issues facing nursing and healthcare professionals today and supporting the continued development of and within the nursing profession.  The Nursing Summit has also provided invaluable networking opportunities for attendees.
