Speaking faculty included nationally renowned nurse educators who are making an impact on student and program outcomes, including Dr. Susan Sportsman, Dr. Linda Caputi and keynote speaker Dr. Patricia Benner.

"The 2016 Elsevier Faculty Development Conference, one of Contemporary Forum's strongest partnership meetings for nine years running, gave us the opportunity to provide vital continuing education to more than 800 nurse educators and healthcare professionals. It was just as inspiring to see our ACC and WCU faculty find great value in applying this knowledge," Contemporary Forums Vice President Jocelyn Vasquez said.
