    Inspired Nurse
    Thursday, June 13 | 9:45 a.m.
    Rich Bluni, RN, Senior Leader, National Speaker, Author, Studer Group, a Huron Solution

    Nursing is one of the few professions that affords us the opportunity to impact lives on a profound level, not only physically but emotionally and spiritually as well. Yet the same qualities that make the nursing profession so deeply rewarding can also make it challenging to sustain energy and passion over time. Rich Bluni’s session, Inspired Nurse, aims to help nurses maintain and recapture those elusive qualities. His session will incorporate exercises and techniques to inspire you on your healthcare journey and help you feel more connected or re-connected to purpose, passion, and inspiration.

    Rich Bluni, RN is a senior leader and one of the most sought-after national speakers with Studer Group, a Huron Solution. He is also the best-selling author of the award-winning books Inspired Nurse, Inspired Journal, Oh No…Not More of That Fluffy Stuff!: The Power of Engagement, and Inspired Nurse Too. Having joined Huron’s Studer Group business in 2007, Rich brings a strong knowledge base of healthcare from both the frontline and leadership perspectives. He has presented to tens of thousands of people across the U.S. and Canada, frequently keynoting major conferences for hospital organizations, medical practices and universities. With 21 years of nursing, risk management, patient safety, and leadership experience, Mr. Bluni understands the challenges, joys, and value of purpose; worthwhile work; and making a difference in healthcare.
