A year ago March, with an eye on doing the right thing, the 2020 NNEC was canceled and in the autumn we began to think about what might be possible for the 2021 National Nursing Ethics Conference. Many of you were kind enough to respond to our survey, asking what your needs were for ethics education with a pandemic raging. We were thrilled with your guidance! While we know a virtual program will be different than gathering in person, we think it is time to connect and rekindle the power of an ethic of caring.
Our goals are to meet you where you are during these difficult times:
1. Make it supportive and uplifting
2. Make it manageable – one morning
3. Make it very affordable
4. Provide an opportunity for ethical reflection
We hope you will be able to join us. The NNEC Planning Committee will have the webpage updated soon ethicsofcaring.org and an email out to you within a week with all the exciting details.
