By Kendrick Clack, BS, RN, and Yvonne Olusi, BS, RN, COS-C, CLNC

The FBCBNA annual Spring Fling was held on March 24, 2012. The event, this year, was facilitated by Yvonne Olusi, FBCBNA President and Kendrick Clack, FBCBNA Board Member. There was a full agenda and the facilitators provided a wealth of knowledge and resources to participants. Emphasis was placed on the importance of joining professional organizations. Students and new nurses often underestimate the need for their voices, in the effort to improve nursing practice. They also miss out on professional networking and mentorships that are readily available within these organizations. Other topics discussed were: continuing education, job-seeking tips, board review, and the variety of career paths offered in nursing. Those in attendance left with the latest professional information and resources, provided by our local nursing schools. We look forward to seeing you next year!
