    Hi I am Janet from Canada. I am nurse here since 2005. I’ve been to some of them and enjoyed thes conference. One thing I liked about them was that at the end of the morning sessions when there had been 3 or 4 speakers we would all take a little break and during the break we could write questions down on a sheet of paper and pass them down to the center isle where some of the workers would pick them up and ask them in an anonymous way to the speakers as they all sat up on the podium together. Lots of interesting discussion would go on between them which I found very informative and interesting. They were very well organized too. I’ll attend some more for sure.

    As to the comment about topics being “new innovation nurses”, I find that this is true of all the conferences I attend whether they are NANN, ANN or Contemporary Forums or any others put on by local hospitals, etc. There is usually something new or a new speaker to hear though and I’ve not been disappointed. I loved the NUS-NUH Nursing Conference they held in Las Vegas a couple of years ago. By the way, if you ever get a chance to hear Professor Helen Bartlett, be sure to attend. Shee is awesome!! So is Professor Frances Kam Yuet Wong.
