About the conference:

This educational opportunity highlights the wealth of excellent nursing practice throughout Avera. Best practices will be shared from across the continuum of care (acute care, long-term care, sub-acute care, hospice and home care). The conference topics are designed for professional Avera nurses in a variety of roles and care settings and provide participants with insights and information that are useful in practice. The day’s activities include opportunities to meet nursing colleagues from many locations. 

Keynote Speaker:  Liz Jazwiec, R.N. is a nationally renowned speaker, strategist and author who has shared her passion for leadership, engagement and service with audiences across the country. She is also a featured speaker with the Studer Group. She’s also been a longtime hospital officer who helped raise service scores at Chicago, Illinois’ Holy Cross Hospital from the 5th to the 99th percentile in just a few years. Her work as vice president of patient care and as the director of emergency services was one of the key reasons Holy Cross won Fortune Magazine’s Enterprise Award for Best Business Practices in 1996. Today, she uses that expertise to inspire other organizations interested in building a culture where excellence is driven by strong leaders and engaged employees. Many audiences describe Liz’s presentations as uplifting, motivational and fun. However they also clearly respect her practical and experience-based style. You’re sure to enjoy her creative and viable suggestions for addressing some of the difficult issues facing organizations today
