I really did not know what to expect with attending the conference. But let me say that this experience EXCEEDED my expectations!! From the set-up to the vendors, to the speakers, to the camaraderie--everything was just WONDERFUL!
KUDOS to Claire and the entire the planning committee, for I know that to put something of this magnitude together and to have it go so well, takes a whole lot of work and dedication. Oh, and by the way, if I had not known that the "expert panel" was a last minute addition, I would not have expected it. For me, it was a complement to the conference and a great experience to be able to ask questions in a forum like that. I learned so much from the speakers and fellow JERKs that I have so much more confidence to continue to forge ahead and be great! Most of all, I am appreciative for the new friendships that came out of it. It is such a beautiful thing to see so many strong, confident, smart nurses who are willing to work together and help one another. I'm looking forward to next year, already!
