Lecture: How International Collaboration Can Advance Nursing Research, Practice, and Education: An Italian Vision for the Future of Nursing

Over the last 30 years, Italy has taken a leadership role in redefining the profession of nursing. The country has developed new policies and institutions to modernize nursing as an advanced practice discipline, with leaders effecting change at universities, within government, and across healthcare settings. What’s next as Italy looks to continue this progress on a global stage?

Join the Connell School of Nursing for our first-ever international Pinnacle Lecture speakers, featuring Gennaro Rocco, RN, MScN, PhD, FAAN, FFNMRCSI, and Alessandro Stievano, RN, MScN, PhD, FAAN, FFNMRCSI. These pioneering nurse leaders will discuss how Italy has achieved systematic change through the development of the Centre of Excellence for Nursing Scholarship of OPI Rome Italy. They’ll share their vision for the future of nursing and explain why international collaboration is key to the profession’s further advance.

A reception will follow.
