    I work as a graduate admission counselor at The College of St. Scholastica and we offer an online MBA in Rural Healthcare. I would like to attend your conference as an exhibitor but do not see information regarding those opportunities. Can you please point me in the right direction? Thank you!

    I just joined this organization as a new member and am making plans to attend the conference in July. I plan to register as soon as I make necessary arrangements. I am currently developing a new Baccalaureate Nursing Program at Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Tx. and the philosophy and conceptual framework will be centered around rural/border health due to the location. I have read many articles and am truly excited, since I was raised in the country in central Missouri and currently own a ranch here in Texas. I am so happy to being a new member and look forward to significant interaction with this group. Thank You for this opportunity! Dr. Geri Goosen

      Hi Geri,
      We are so glad you are planning to come to the conference. It sounds like you are in the thick of truly preparing nurses for rural healthcare. Thank you ! We would love it if you would consider writing a piece for our newsletter about the development of your program and the philosophy and conceptual framework structuring that development. Please contact Sandie Nadelson – if you are interested. Let her know that Sheila and I both sent you her way 🙂

      We look forward to meeting you in July !
