STTI Board Leadership Institute, 8-10 March 2015, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA
STTI has developed an intensive two-day institute to prepare nurse leaders for service as board members of health institutions, hospitals, and community health systems. Registration is open now for the 2015 STTI Board Leadership Institute.

     One registration fee is US $1,499. 
    Two individuals can attend together for an incredibly
     discounted total of US $1,999.discounted total of US $1,999.

STTI created the Board Leadership Institute in direct response to the Institute of Medicine Report “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health” that called out the discrepancy between the number of nurses in voting positions on health and hospital boards vs. physicians. Since nurses comprise the largest segment of the health care workforce, this critically important group needs a voice and a representative in the boardroom.  

The Board Leadership Institute positions high-profile speakers to best prepare nurse leaders who will impact the future of nursing. If you or someone you know has ever considered board service, the Board Leadership Institute represents an incredible opportunity at a very affordable price. This institute is offered at break-even rates and is not a revenue generator for STTI.

Learn more about the STTI Board Leadership Institute. To take advantage of this incredible registration offer, contact Luci Forgey at +1.317.917.4992 (International), or email

"In making the decision to relocate, I was very anxious about finding a job as a newly graduated nurse. I recognized the importance of finding a supportive and healthy work environment, but how would I do that after moving to a new city? Because Emory had instilled in me a belief in the importance of professional organizations, I reached out to the only network I had—STTI." Read the full story at Reflections on Nursing Leadership
