NTI 2013 Dares To, Then Steps Forward NTI 11 M ay’s 2013 National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition in Boston challenged and renewed more than 7,400 nurse attendees. • Their week began with a rousing celebration of recognition awards and stories about daring inspired by the past year’s AACN theme, Dare To. • Participants reconnected with old friends and met new ones, many of them through NTI Network, the new social networking platform. • The week culminated in the unveiling of Step Forward as the new year’s theme, setting the stage for 2014 when, from May 17-22, the mile-high city of Denver welcomes NTI for the first time. Galvanized around the 20122013 theme — Dare To — the AACN community responded enthusiastically to President Kathryn Roberts’ challenge with remarkable personal achievements. Becoming certified, completing an academic degree, competing in athletic events and facing life-threatening illness are among the many dares taken on during the year.
