Welcome to Opal Group’s premier event for senior nursing leaders!

Healthcare Professionals: Encouraging a Shift in the Narrative

The Chief Nursing Officer Summit is an invite-only executive Summit for CNOs from hospitals and health systems to discuss vital clinical challenges, pertinent trends, and practical ideas while exploring innovative solutions. Join us for 3 days of insightful panels, presentations, collaboration, and unparalleled networking.

We often talk about healthcare being broken, but healthcare gets many things right. Evolution is required and needed, and healthcare professionals are working hard every day in that direction. We see effective strategies for boosting nursing staff engagement and improving retention, navigating the multigenerational nurse workforce, focusing on nurse wellbeing by combating high rates of burnout, and improving patient care, safety, and experience.

Join nursing leaders from some of the most well-respected healthcare organizations across the U.S. as they discuss the most pressing issues within nursing today. We will explore top tactics for motivating teams, action items to boost staffing plans and maintain firm personnel, dynamic and daring visions to strengthen the clinical workforce, and much more through keynote presentations, panel discussions, and small group roundtables. Attendees will return to their organizations with necessary action items to collaborate internally and improve their processes. You won’t want to miss this.
