As a second step, VONL convened a task force to develop strategic goals related to the identified workforce issues.
The VONL model for nurse internships represents a twofold effort.
VONL supports the spirit of inquiry and best practices.
VONL invites Vermont nurses to share their work in EBP by submitting work to our website.
A small group of VONL leaders met after the July 10th meeting, to discuss possible leadership presentations.
VONL will continue to partner with the Vermont State Nurses Association, (VSNA), the Vermont Association of Hospitals and health Systems (VAHHS), the Office of Nursing Workforce and the Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) to continue to support and strengthen the Nursing workforce in Vermont
Applicants for the scholarship must posses a Vermont RN license in good standing, be a member of VONL, have a demonstrated commitment to nursing leadership, as evidenced by participation in professional seminars, organizations, work accomplishments, and recommendations of peers, and be currently enrolled in an accredited program that will lead to an advanced degree.
Hollie has been an active member of VONL and VSNA for many years.
The poster presenters and concurrent breakout presenters had submitted abstracts for the posters and presentations that were reviewed for presentation by the VONL Executive Board.
The VONL Executive Board would like to thank everyone that helped make this Summit a success: the exhibitors, who through their support enable us to offer the Summit at a reasonable cost to attendees; Sue Boyer for her direction of the poster and concurrent sessions, and the workshop she conducted on April 10th; and the speakers for their excellent presentations.
The next VONL
meeting will be held on January 8th, at 9 AM, at Gifford Medical Center.
