Our College sponsors several that rate highly with attendees, including the Drexel University Nursing Education Institute (DUNEI). This yearly event draws faculty from across the country to explore ideas for preparing tomorrow’s nurses.

At a busy poster exhibition, Dean Gloria Donnelly greets passing attendees with a smile. “I see some people here year after year,” she grins. “It’s good to know our conferences give people real value.”

These conferences have several goals. Education is the most important. Nobody can keep up with all the changes taking place in healthcare. We call attention to hot topics people need to know about. The events also provide an opportunity to spotlight Drexel healthcare faculty at the forefront of change, such as educational technology and emerging doctorates in nursing.

CNHP professors are eligible to attend the conferences at no charge, benefitting them and their students—a third goal. It’s also easier to stay in touch with colleagues when you can spend real time with them in a relaxed setting. We share ideas and find out what’s working for other schools.
