Quality and the health care provider
The vision of the Mae Orvis Health Care Symposium is to facilitate and encourage the examination of current evidence based practice ideas and concepts relevant to the evolving interdisciplinary healthcare team. We seek to explore objectives to provide best outcomes and best practice modalities to our vast patient populations in the Nevada health care community and beyond.
Founded in 1956, the Orvis School of Nursing (OSN), at the University of Nevada, is the oldest school of nursing in the state and is dedicated to serving people of Nevada through quality teaching, research and service.
