This is one of those situations that brings great joy and great sadness at the same time! We are almost to our capacity of 50 nurses who are planning, or hoping to participate in the Nursing Activism Think Tank in July, and once we reach that number we will have to start a waiting list. The great joy is that so many nurses are coming forward to declare that activism in nursing is alive and well – just knowing that this is true is an inspiration! The great sadness is that our capacity is limited for a face-to-face gathering such as this.
We will continue to encourage people to complete the interest form and will let people know the status of your “place” on the list. All confirmations will be finalized by May 1st.
We will continue to explore ways to support nursing activism – it may be possible to organize other similar face-to-face gatherings. In fact we hope by organizing this gathering we inspire others to do the same! If you are interested in doing something similar in the future, let us know – we will do what we can to support what you envision! We will also share, on this website, what we learn from the July Think Tank! So stay tuned!
