Candy May Dorman The entire experience was surreal.
Being in the presence of 8000 other nurses that share the
same passion and dedication to patient care that you do is
beyond any expectations I had for attending NTI. Can't wait for
Mike Ackerman Post NTI Syndrome: the experience of
coming back really excited to a group of co-workers that don't
share that same enthusiasm! Share if it's happened to you, like
Maria Wright Hagg AMAZING experience!!!!! I couldn't
get enough crammed into my little pea brain-but I tried!!!!

the neat things I learned!!! Can't wait for next year!! I am so
excited for my staff that I will be making sure that everyone
who can go does go next year!!!!
