This past weekend I attended the Neuroscience Education Institute‘s New Faculty Member Training in San Diego, CA. Myself and approximately 3 other Psychiatric APRN’s from across the country were the first-ever non-physician providers invited to sit on this prestigious faculty board.
The NEI was founded by Stephen Stahl, MD, & Steve Smith, current CEO, over two decades ago. Their twice yearly conferences educate providers from all over the world in the latest treatments for several realms of mental health illness; the latest neuropsychopharmacology research, and several other cutting edge science-based research relevant to psychiatric practitioners.
The NEI has recognized that the growing trend of nurse practitioners across the country providing care to psychiatric patients is one that they could no longer ignore, & chose to invest their time and resources in.
The program put forth by Rick Davis to teach providers how to significantly improve their speaking techniques was first rate and unique to the field. ￼
