Welcome to the 2016 Nursing Management Congress! Sponsored by Wolters Kluwer, publisher of Nursing Management journal, the conference offers you educational sessions that will strengthen the practical and critical thinking leadership skills you need to improve the overall quality, efficacy and cost of patient care in your organization. As the premier conference for nurse leaders, NMC has something for every level of nurse leader in every practice setting. In addition to many of our outstanding returning faculty, you will hear from new and innovative thought nursing leadership throughout our high-paced, innovative program. Of all the choices you have for national meetings, none will deliver the opportunities for learning, networking, and growth as Nursing Management Congress 2016. I look forward to meeting you here in Las Vegas!
