The Nurses Choice Luncheon is the Ohio Nurses Foundation’s annual fundraiser, where nurses and friends of nurses alike come together in celebration of the nursing profession.
The luncheon is also where noteable nurses and future nurses are awarded grants and scholarships, and friends of nurses are awarded Nurses Choice Awards.
9:30am : Attendees enjoy pre-luncheon networking, complete with breakfast hors d’oeuvres, while having fun working their best angle in the photo booth and bidding on raffle auction items.
11:30am : With 3 delicious menu selections* to choose from, attendees will socialize while enjoying their lunch before the hilarity begins. This year’s keynote is none other than Amy Dee – a psychiatric RN who doubles as a first-rate stand-up comedian. Amy Dee will not only have attendees laughing, but will provide tactics about ‘Engaging Your Power’ that can be used in every day life.
Most importantly, noteable nurses and future nurses will be awarded their research grants and scholarships. Friends of nurses will also be presented with Nurses Choice Awards during this time.
3:00pm: The event wraps up with one last donation request. It’s because of generous donors that the Ohio Nurses Foundation is able to fulfill its mission of advancing the nursing profession through education, research and scholarships!
*Attendees choose lunch selection during registration. Lunches are also served with salad and dessert.
Amy Dee, RN
A first-rate comedian, Amy Dee is also a powerful motivational speaker with a deep understanding of behavioral science.
She uses her hilarious “we’ve all been there” stories to help audiences connect, laugh and open up to the science of how we behave and the power we have to make different choices about how we treat each other (and ourselves). Audiences never forget Amy Dee’s stories. That’s why they never forget the messages behind those stories: We have the power to choose our attitude. We’re accountable for our choices. Obstacles can be problems or opportunities. We can use negative emotions as fuel for positive changes. And kindness always matters … especially in today’s rapidly changing and often frightening world. Audiences leave laughing, ready to make profound changes in their life at home and at work.
Registration is $50*
*Registration price covers the cost pre-luncheon hors d’oeuvres and lunch.
