This course meets NHBN requirements for Continuing Competence.

6 Contact Hours

How can nurses become more empowered and use power wisely? What obstacles do nurses face and how can they navigate them?

Nurses are the largest workforce in healthcare. Empowering nurses may be one of the most important steps that individuals and healthcare organizations can take toward improving the quality and safety of healthcare systems.

In this interactive and experiential workshop with Judy Ringer and Beth Boynton, RN, MS, you will discuss these questions and explore strategies for developing positive expressions of power.

Participants will practice centering, listening, the art of perspective-taking, and expressing themselves. We’ll draw on words, movement, and attitude to stop fighting, freezing, and avoiding, and utilize the stuck energy of emotion to advocate, inquire, and manage the stress of day-to-day interactions with patients, physicians, and staff.


  • Develop concrete skills to promote healthy expressions of power in nurse practice settings.
  • Create opportunity for facilitated dialogue about workplace dynamics in healthcare.
  • Increase knowledge about helpful vs. unhelpful ways nurses influence the management, administration and delivery of healthcare.
  • Increase ability to manage daily stress and critical conversations involved in providing high quality nursing care.

Join Judy and Beth in July. Accept your power and support others in finding theirs.
