On behalf of the White Shoes committee, welcome to White Shoes 2017!

Thank you for your commitment to continuously improving your work through evaluation, education, and training. Special recognition is extended to our presenters and education station facilitators who embody this commitment to excellence.

Please refer to this White Shoes app for the event Agenda, overview of education stations and poster presentations, presenter profiles, and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Disclosure Form—please read this carefully.

Drexel University Online has generously donated gift baskets for each White Shoes event. Upon arrival, you will be given a raffle ticket that you can fill out while reviewing the education stations and poster presentations. Once completed, tickets can be submitted at the Drexel Online education station. The winner of the gift basket will be announced at the conclusion of the final break.

Helpful hints:


  1. There will be a morning and afternoon break and an extended lunch break, during which you will have ample time to return calls and visit the education stations and poster presentations.
  2. If you misplace your raffle ticket, please see someone at the registration desk for a replacement.
  3. We ask that you adjust your phones to quiet mode. If you need to take a call, please step outside of the presentation room.
  4. Following the event, you will access your learning plan via BAYADA University to complete the required course and event evaluations. Once completed, you can download your CE certificate from BAYADA University.

Please enjoy this opportunity to get to know and learn from each other. The Clinical Standards and Leadership (CSL) and Quality Assurance (QA) ambassadors can be identified by their name tag and will be available throughout the day. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to assist you.

Have a great day!
