WELCOME TO CAPE COD

Whether you are coming to Cape Cod for the first time, or are a return visitor you have a treat in store. Cape Cod is a geographic cape located on the U.S. northeastern seaboard of the Atlantic Ocean. The history and beauty of Cape Cod’s fifteen towns and villages attracts tourists to its many beaches, museums, and local festivities. Well known sites such as Plymouth Rock (where the Pilgrims first landed and was the home of the first Thanksgiving) is a car drive away.

The nearby town of Hyannis is the summer home of the Kennedy family and Kennedy Museum.

St. Francis Xavier Church, located on South Street in Hyannis, was the church Rose and Joe Kennedy chose to attend after buying their home in Hyannis Port in the 1920s.

St. Francis Xavier became the summer parish for most of the Kennedy family. It was also the site of several important family events, so much so, that the locals often call it the “Kennedy Church.” It is also the church where the Schwarzenegger’s were married.

Before you leave the area keep in mind that the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and
Nantucket are a boat ride away… Plus, fresh lobster, New England clam chowder, and cranberry delights are featured throughout the region.

The 2017 NACN-USA Summit/Conference explores leading healthcare issues dominating current national debates including: drugs pre-birth to pre-death, veterans suicide, proposed protection/prevention solutions, and their inherent moral challenges for Catholic Nurses. The program is designed to equip nurses to lead needed efforts within their organizations. During the Summit/ Conference, the collective knowledge and leadership talent present from nursing practice, education, research, and policy will inform, analyze, collaborate, network and propose actions plans for NACN-USA members.

The 2017 NACN-USA Summit/Conference will be taking place during the Yarmouth Seaside Festival Weekend. While we gather to engage in important professional work, your families can enjoy the Columbus Day Weekend’s annual Yarmouth Seaside Festival activities including:
• The Seaside Festival Parade
• Music Entertainment
• 5K Road Race
• Kayak and Canoe Races
• Bed Race
• Sand Sculpture Contest
• Pie Eating Contest
• Fireworks
• Craft Fair
• Rides

In fulfillment of our organization’s mission:

• This Summit/Conference, through Catholic teaching, we will focus on educational programs, spiritual nourishment, patient advocacy, and integration of faith and health, as we reach outward to the larger Church and our communities.

• We will offer support to those in need. This will be accomplished by addressing pressing issues of today. They are drugs pre-birth to pre-death, veteran suicide and the truth about Reiki and Yoga.

• As members, we will continue to share our faith and values with other healthcare workers, family members, clergy and religious. All attendees will participate in dialogue to produce concrete action plans and tools to go forth in this secular world.

OBJECTIVES
1. Examine issues related to drugs pre-birth to pre-death, veteran suicide, Reiki, and Yoga.

2. Engage with Catholic nurses from practice, education, research, and policy to step up to the plate with new ways to impact advances in patient advocacy.

3. Produce concrete action plans and tools.

4. Deepen our Catholic conscience to act on moral and ethical issues which conflict with secular society.

NURSING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
This activity has been submitted to the Missouri Nurses Association for approval to award 6 nursing contact hours. The Missouri Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
