ODONA Members,

     I hope you all had great holiday seasons and have been successful in managing the stress related to your job and the holidays, well. I am excited to be working with the board in planning our annual conference. This year’s conference will be a bit different from years past with time for round table discussions, networking and hopefully some activity’s that you will find enjoyable.  I urge you to please encourage other Directors of Nursing and ADONS to look into attending our conference this year.  I would love to have a record breaking attendance at this year’s conference.  We cannot do this without the help of our current members. We have some great speaker and vendors this year and I look forward to meeting you all at this year’s conference.

     Just a reminder the dates are March 25-27th 2018 at the Embassy Suites Dublin, Ohio. Don’t forget to book your room!!

Scholarship applications are posted on this website and the deadline has been extended to 02/18/18 to have them sent to us.

     Again I could really use your help in attracting new members to our association. If you have any questions or need more information or would even like to become more involved yourself please don’t hesitate to contact me at


 I wish everyone great surveys, increased quality measures and high CMI’s!!!!  But most of all don’t forget to enjoy why you became a nurse!!!
