From the Editor

Could your nursing use a shot in the arm?  

Could you use some renewal for your nursing practice this summer? Consider attending the 4th Biennial Innovations in Faith-Based Nursing Conference, June 16-19 at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, IN. The cost is only $500 for the conference, CE credit, great food, and lovely accommodations. The fellowship and friendships are priceless. Come be renewed with other Christian nurses, students, educators, and advanced practitioners. God will meet us there!   

Onward,  Kathy
