First Annual UCI Nursing Symposium Turns Innovative ideas into Practice

The inaugural UCI Nursing Symposium, scheduled to be held June 13, will bring the Orange County nursing community together to explore theories, approaches and strategies that can turn innovative ideas into practice.

“Participants in this program will gain an understanding of how to validate and implement new innovations, and how to turn those innovations into successful clinical practice,” said Miriam Bender, chair of the Nursing Symposium Planning Committee and assistant professor in the School of Nursing.
