Conference and Healthy Fair

The Showcase of Tucson Nurses is a sharing educational conference where southern Arizona Nurses exchange innovative health care ideas during a two-part continuing education offering.

As a part of the Nurses Week Celebration, this program is a tribute to southern Arizona Nurses who respond daily to the health care needs of the community.

Annually more than two hundred Nurses from southern Arizona, educators, staff Nurses, administrators, clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, researchers, and other practicing professionals from a variety of disciplines, attend the Showcase to learn about current Nursing research and practice, and network with their colleagues.

The focus of the Healthy Fair and Conference is to encourage Nurses to explore and experience varied ways of caring for themselves and their own families through education and other modalities. It is also an opportunity for Nurses to share special interests with their peers through arts, self-care, and products. Vendors often display jewelry, uniforms, drug information, vaccine information, scholarly publications, massage therapy, and many other interesting, informative, and fun exhibits for Nurses during the annual conference.

Conference Keynote Speaker

Kim Richards, RN, NC-BC
Healthy Nurse Evangelist
Author. Speaker. Life Coach

Founder/Owner, Self-Care Academy™ President, Kim Richards & Associates, Inc.

Kim, a Board Certified Nurse Coach, is passionate about coaching people to create the life they’ve dreamed. She combines over 30 years of resiliency research into the components of Self-Care Academy. Her extensive research on the science of self-care and burnout prevention has been widely published and a book of her personal journey is in the works!

Kim is proud to offer her new series, Rising Resilient, designed to inspire you with information, real life stories and outcomes focusing on lessons learned in recovering from traumatic life events, great loss and unexpected life changes. Kim’s profound message of hope, synchronicity, and ultimate release of expectations will make you laugh, cry and imagine a truly authentic life that IS within your reach.

During significant personal transition in her life, Kim applied the manifestation lessons she shares with others to completely reinvent the life she dreamed of. After meeting her husband two years ago, she moved to Puerto Rico. Through yet further “coincidence”, she and her husband are now the crew on a luxury sailing catamaran in the Caribbean, he as the Captain and she as the Chef and First Mate. As they welcome guests each week, the critical thinking skills she has mastered in her 44 years as a nurse, are utilized each day in many ways!

Kim offers private sessions, professional workshops as well as hospital wide “turnaround” programs. She excels at working with nursing leadership and staff to improve communication, moral and overall professionalism resulting in radical transformation of the work environment.
