June 22 • 6:00 p.m. –7:30 p.m. ET

Nurse Innovators, Creators, and Experts Talk Innovation in Health Care

Join the American Nurses Association as we launch our new series of Innovation Lounge virtual events!

Beginning June 22, ANA will host four virtual lounges to run in conjunction with the ANA Innovation Awards submission process. We hosted our first virtual networking lounge at the ANCC Virtual Summit last October. It was such an overwhelming success, we decided to launch more of these interactive events.

Why We Gather

We are creating a space for nurses to expand their thinking about the profession and health care, with a focus on innovation. Connect with nursing colleagues and leaders to enhance your skills, get motivated, and build upon your personal confidence. Ultimately, we want to inspire you to develop and act on your ideas.

  • Meet nurses who are leading innovative efforts.
  • Engage in real-time networking around all aspects of nursing innovation.
  • Join a supportive environment working to accelerate innovation.
  • Learn from people who are driving conversations around nursing and health care.

This event is free. However, registration is required
