What is the PNEG?
“The Professional Nurse Educator Group (PNEG) is a virtual network of educators from all over the United States that are dedicated the lifelong learning of professional nurses. This network is open to all educators in the field. While there is no formal process to join, membership list or dues, we welcome those interested in network participation to come to the special PNEG networking session at the annual PNEG Conference to participate in discussions and future conference planning. The network includes faculty from nursing schools, continuing nursing education professionals, entrepreneurs and nursing staff development professionals interested in being part of the network. Discussions also occur on our listserv and in the PNEG LinkedIn group (now with >2000 members).”
PNEG is celebrating 40 years of their annual conference next October 17th-20th in Westin Kansas City, Missouri. At the completion of the PNEG conference participants should be able to:
