What has the ONE Conference meant to me?
Written by Sarah Bakke
“I had the pleasure of attending the very first ONE Conference in 2017. I can tell you that the experience I had that very first year was transformational for me as a NICU nurse. I had the passion to want to make a difference for the babies I cared for and the knowledge to know that there were practices we could improve on my unit, however, that year in Ontario, CA, I was given the tools and the confidence to start my journey as a change agent in my unit.
So what is the ONE Conference all about? Keep reading to find out more….”
The ONE Conference is for everyONE who cares for NICU babies
The ONE Conference was created by NICU nurses for NICU nurses, but everyONE who cares for NICU babies will benefit from this conference. It started out as a two-day course about the trendy NICU topic of NeuroNICU’s; but it has grown now to be so much more than that.
In 2017, this conference was a first of its kind and was created through the collaboration of international NeuroNICU nurses and focused on nursing practice standards related to caring for the injured or at-risk newborn brain. But we also believe that a TEAM who has a common mission can accomplish great things, and we encourage everyONE who is committed to the care of baby brains should attend and participate in The ONE Conference experience.
Watch the video below to hear what past attendees have to say about The ONE Conference.
We know that being a NICU Nurse is as exhausting as it is rewarding.
So, we organize every year’s conference agenda so that we cover topics that address both your heart and your head.
To satisfy your desire to know everything about caring for baby brains in the best way possible in your NICU we bring together a star-studded cast of Neonatal ICU experts from around the world. Our past speakers have included bedside nurses, nurse practitioners, NICU psychologists, Neonatologist and Neurologists. These are the best of the best!!
We also know that YOU cannot serve from an empty cup. The work we do is sometimes so demanding that we can’t escape it, even on our days off. So to help fill you back up, we teach practical examples of self-care for home and at work; and tackle tough topics like compassion fatigue and other mental health issues seen all too frequently in ourselves and our peers.
Our Mission – THE POWER OF ONE
We believe in the power of ONE.
We believe that in ONE moment, with ONE touch or ONE word, you can make a difference in the life of ONE baby, ONE family, and make a lasting imprint on their ONE brain.
We believe YOU are that ONE.
