The Orlando Health Nursing Excellence Conference provides a motivational learning environment to recognize and celebrate excellence in nursing care and leadership. As a result, each year, nurses showcase their best practices, performance improvement projects, and nursing research at the Nursing Excellence Conference. This full day conference is a highly anticipated event that inspires and engages nurses at all levels. 

The Nursing Excellence Conference features presentations from national speakers, poster presentations, speaker breakout sessions, and best practice stories told by members of our nursing practice councils. At the most recent conference, attendees were thrilled to hear caring and compassionate patient stories as told by their colleagues of how nurses made a difference in the lives of our patients. Also, a total of 38 posters were selected for presentation at the conference. Of those, four posters were selected for special recognition.
