The 2013 fiscal year promises to be an exciting year for interacting and sharing some of the best thinking going on in health care today! We invite you to join us – whether a nursing, medicine, health, or administrative professional – as we continue to grow and develop Continuing Education offerings that are timely and relevant.
On October 4-5, 2012, our popular Deep Discovery Series brings Janet F. Quinn, PhD, RN, FAAN to Kansas City to present Habitats for Healing, a 1 1/2 day program. Habitats for Healing are optimal healing environments in which nurses, other staff and professional healing colleagues thrive and patients and families receive quality, whole person care that facilitates both healing and curing (Quinn, 2002). This retreat offers nurses and other healing professionals an opportunity for rest, renewal and re-imagining the workplace as a Habitat for Healing. We will explore the concepts and essential components of Habitats for Healing, including the nature of healing, spiritual dimensions of healing practice, and creating healing relationships. Our emphasis will be on sustaining the wholeness and well-being of the healing professionals so that the sacred healing work that they do can continue and flourish. Pre-registration is required for Deep Discovery programs.
On March 28-29, 2013, one of our own renowned alumni, Dr. Ada Sue Hinshaw, will join us for the popular Lessons From Legends: Power, Policy & Practice program. More information on this program will be available soon.
We continue to offer the Emerging Trends Series – cutting-edge programs that feature the work of scholars and scientists from the University of Kansas Medical Center community. This noon-time series, provided with support from the University of Kansas Department of Health Policy and Management, is free of charge with registration at the program, and topics that are revolutionary and relevant! We invite you to get to know the experts in our midst. Programs are moving to the third Monday (summer excluded).
We are pleased to recognize continued financial support for our Deep Discovery programs from the Eisenbise Executive Development Series Fund. Such support is welcomed and valued as this support helps to reduce the cost per program for all participants.
The University of Kansas School of Nursing has an illustrious history of providing quality continuing education and we think you will find our program offerings exciting and relevant. Rather than a series of separate programs, we aim to make it possible for you to plan your education for the entire year. We hope you will make KU your “choice” continuing education provider for a wide range of topics!
Additional program partners are welcomed and help reduce the cost per program for all participants. Contact Mary L. Gambino, PhD, RN at (913) 588-1695 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the benefits and cost of becoming a Deep Discovery Program Partner with its discounted group rates.
Peruse this website throughout the year to plan a self-development curriculum. We will strive to be your Continuing Education provider of choice!

This series is an opportunity for advanced clinicians in nursing, but also select other healthcare disciplines, to explore clinical topics that keep them at peak performance through knowledge acquisition and peer review dialogues on a variety of high level topics aimed at sustaining the highest level of practice possible. This series is designed to augment the continuing education requirements for advanced practice nursing.
