AONE is underway in sunny Phoenix, AZ, and Nobl couldn’t be more excited (or suntanned)! Thousands of nursing professionals from across the nation are here, which means we’re finally able to be with OUR people; nurses!
The conference began early with an inspiring keynote by world-renowned author and TED speaker Simon Sinek. He captivated and inspired everyone in the house to focus on ‘why’ we chose careers in healthcare, encouraging his audience to focus on long term vision rather than short term goals and metrics — metrics we often times become so caught up with in our industry.
You can’t run a race without knowing where the finish line is. Goals are not enough, you need vision.
Our energy continued into the exhibit hall as it opened for the morning. We were honored to have hundreds of nurses stop by our booth and chat with us about how Nobl impacts nursing and revolutionizes patient care management. With the core of our solution focused on hardwiring hourly rounding, many of our conversations focused on the struggles of implementing an hourly rounding solution and how Vigilance™ makes it easy for healthcare organizations to adopt digital hourly rounding.
Our booth is located next to Capella University, where ABC’s NYMed star and real life nurse — Katie Duke — came and spoke to booth attendees about her unexpected journey into nursing and her continued passion for caring for patients — especially those in critical conditions. I enjoyed hearing how she saw NYMed as an opportunity to show the world what nursing is really like — the good, the bad, and the struggles nurses have to put up with on a daily basis, but how the humanistic side of nursing makes it all worth it.
After a busy day of sessions and networking, the day closed with an exhibit hall reception where we had the opportunity to continue building relationships in a more relaxed environment. Soft pretzels and spinach artichoke dip helped fuel us for the evening President’s Reception where AONE members, attendees and exhibitors finally took the conference badges off and danced the night away!
We’re looking forward to an equally successful day 2! If you haven’t already, stop by our booth — 415 — to learn more about Vigilance™. Plus, we’re giving away writing pens that look like syringes. And what nurse doesn’t love that?
