2017 ANCC Magnet Conference

Oh my, the magnitude of the Magnet Conference!  The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) is a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association (ANA).  Their mission is to promote excellence in nursing and healthcare globally.  This year, roughly 10,000 nurses gathered in Houston, Texas to attend a showcase of best nursing practices.

We felt honored to exhibit and discuss aromatherapy at this conference.  Nurses showed so much enthusiasm about using essential oils and the benefits it can bring to their patients.  Many nurses were eager to explore the research that shows decreases in patients' pain, nausea and anxiety. 

For those of you who asked, here are links to the Allina Health/Penny George Institute for Health and Healing posters and articles:
