StaffGarden's NTI 2016 Conference Pass Giveaway

by: Mike Altier

We are excited to announce our NTI 2016 ticket giveaway! Nurses who sign up on and current StaffGarden users, have the opportunity to win 2 full conference passes + hotel accommodations to this amazing event. Held in historic New Orleans Louisiana, this conference is nationally recognized for its quality of education, networking opportunities, and exhibit hall (which StaffGarden will be present at). We are proud to partner with Beth Hawkes, blogger at and StaffGarden Contributor, to offer this to the nursing community!

Why We Are Doing It

StaffGarden has always been about providing nurses with as many opportunities as we can. We believe that in order to change healthcare for the better, we need to give nurses better tools to manage and maintain their careers while providing them opportunities to grow and advance. That’s why not only are we proud to make innovative tools, but to offer them completely free, today and forever.

NTI is a wonderful conference. It’s where we officially launched our platform last year and connected with 100’s nurses, many of whom are still active StaffGarden users to this day! But most of all, there are so many great opportunities within the conference to learn, grow, and connect with like minded professionals who are looking to be the very best nurses they can be.

Many of the nurses that we connected with gave us raving reviews on the quality of the lessons learned during the conference. So when we had the opportunity to give 2 more nurses the chance to attend, we contacted Nurse Beth, and said “Let’s tell as many nurses about this as we possibly can”.

Who We’re Partnering With

Beth is a writer, speaker, consultant and all around awesome person. She believes in being awesome and helping nurses out. She runs her own successful blog at and is a contributor to the StaffGarden blog. She will also be attending NTI 2016 and hopes to learn about being more awesome and how to change the world with the on-boarding of better and more qualified nurses.
