Think Tank is reaching capacity!

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!

  2. Dear Peggy,

    I will be out of the country during the time of the Think Tank. I wanted to let you know that I think it is great that you are organizing this and if there is any way I can be involved in the future, I would love to do so. I am retiring from my position at USC in June and I still want to be involved in nursing and, in particular, nursing activism.

    I look forward to following up on NurseManifest.

    I hope all is well.

    Thanks and warm regards,

    • How wonderful to hear from you!! We will definitely be posting any and all follow-up to this gathering to keep everyone informed! Meanwhile, if you want to help spear-head another similar event – perhaps in Southern California – that would be terrific — let us know! We can use this website to get the information out!
