Barton Community College will offer health-care professionals a chance learn valuable skills from industry leaders that will help them in their day to day jobs, as well as fulfill continued education requirements, at the 21st annual Clara Barton Colloquium from 7:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, at the Club at StoneRidge, 1438 24th St., Great Bend.
Barton is an approved provider of continued nursing education by the Kansas State Board of Nursing. The workshop will provide insight on various topics that are relevant to health-care professionals, which will count for 0.5 credit-hours and 7.5 contact hours. Topics will include stress management, fostering civility in a medical environment, the power of humor, leadership and many more.
Dr. Cindy Clark and motivational speaker Rosa Wilson will facilitate the workshop. Dr. Clark is a widely published, visionary scholar whose innovative research and presentations have heightened awareness about the importance of fostering civility in nursing education and practice. Wilson has been a motivational speaker for more than three years. Prior to this, she served as a health-care educator for 19 years.
Barton Adult Health Care Coordinator Carol Crockett said the colloquium is a great event for sharing excitement and enjoying camaraderie amongst health-care professionals.
“The event provides great information and opportunities for continuing education, but it is also just a great time for nurses and other health-care professionals to celebrate their professions,” she said.
Cost for the workshop is $75 and includes refreshments, lunch, materials, college credit and continuing education. There will be several opportunities for door prizes as well.
