The ANCC Pathways to Excellence® Program recognizes a healthcare organization's commitment to creating a positive nursing practice environment. To qualify for ANCC's Pathway designation, organizations must meet 12 practice standards essential to an ideal nursing practice environment.

  • Understand the long-term value and return on investment of becoming a Pathway to Excellence organization, and how to achieve this distinction.

  • Learn how to align your nursing environment to the Pathway to Excellence practice standards, increase nurse job satisfaction, and improve organizational outcomes

  • Celebrate Pathway to Excellence accomplishments.

Who Should Attend?

Any size or type of healthcare organization where nurses care for patients or residents, including acute, post-acute, and long-term-care organizations will be there. Ambulatory and independent outpatient organizations, such as clinics, dialysis centers, home care providers, hospices, physician offices, surgical centers, and similar organizations are also welcome.

Some of the attendees will include everyone from chief nursing officers and directors of nursing to nursing case managers and staff nurses.

Keynote Speakers

In the opening general session keynote titled "Shift Your Brilliance," Simon T. Bailey, MA, CSP, CPAE, critically acclaimed speaker and author will illustrate how to shift your thinking and creatively release leadership and organizational brilliance.

In this interactive session, Bailey will share strategies to sharpen your focus, clear your vision, harness your potential, and learn the core principles of a “Shift Your Brilliance” mind-set.

The closing general session focuses on "Innovative Mindset." Lynn Fick-Cooper, MBA, BA,

program director and lead faculty for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Community Coalition Leadership Program, works to develop the next generation of nurse leaders serving vulnerable populations in communities across the country.

Fick-Cooper will share her unique take on innovation—what it means to function with an “innovative mindset” that enables you to think differently to create an all-encompassing culture of health. She will help nurses discover new ideas that expand on the concept of what innovation is and how it happens. Fick-Cooper will also explore tactics that will help you solve problems and embrace challenges through creativity and innovation.

The conference will also feature educational sessions, networking receptions, poster presentations and an exhibit hall full of the latest in healthcare products and services.
