What Inspired Nurse Blake To Start NurseCon at Sea

Nurse Blake told all about his inspiration to start NurseCon at Sea!

"I've been a nurse for 8 years now and I remember back when I was in nursing school I thought that the nursing community was being underserved by hospitals, large companies, and some nursing associations. This led me to create NurseCon at Sea which is an annual nursing conference that takes place on a cruise ship. This started as a small idea and is now a conference that provides not only fun and a community, but high quality accredited nursing courses to attendees. We have 3 full-time DNP educators that lead over 20 instructors to provide CNEs during the conference. My favorite part of NurseCon at Sea is the amazing community. Unlike other conferences that focus on a specific specialty, we bring nurses together from all over the world of different ages, backgrounds, and specialties," Nurse Blake

NurseCon at Sea is set to take place twice in 2023, with different cruise ships and destinations. For the first conference, NurseCon at Sea traveled to the Dominican Republic from February 6-10.

The next NurseCon at Sea conference is scheduled for April 24-28, 2023. It departs from Miami, Florida and visits Coco Cay (Royal Caribbean's private island) and Nassau, Bahamas. The ship is reserved exclusively for NurseCon at Sea attendees during the specified cruise dates.
