Dear Nurses,

In this past year, COVID-19 has resulted in dramatic changes to the healthcare marketplace. Patient care is now forever changed with the growth of virtual care. Deloitte came out with a report that states Healthcare Spending Will Reach $8.3 Trillion by 2040. Deloitte attributes the projected rise in spending to the anticipated increase in digital technologies including real-time biometric sensing, apps, wearables, and digital nudging. While this is a mind-numbing number, the upside of their projection is that 60% of healthcare spending will go to improving health and well-being!

Here at the NNBA, we are working on migrating our website "hosts". We are on target to begin this website migration on Tuesday, February 16th at 2:30pm (PST) and have it completed by 4:00pm on Friday, February 19th. During this window, the website may be off-line. Once the entire website is moved, it can take up to 72 hours to propagate throughout the world wide web. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause, but this is a necessary upgrade to keep the NNBA growing.
