Letter from the President Peggy Kish RN,
Clinical Services Director for Zandex Health Care

The 25th Annual ODONA Convention “Connecting the Dots with ODONA in 2014” will be held Sunday through Tuesday, March 23 – 25, 2014 at the Embassy Suites in Dublin, Ohio.

Your ODONA Board is working very hard to bring you a meaningful, timely and educational convention. The focus of the convention is, as always, the Directors of Nursing in long term care facilities across the state. You are the focus of the program we are planning and we want to see you there.

While the details of the program are still in the works, we can say that our program will offer topics that will help you be more successful in your job. CEU credits can be earned while you gain knowledge that will help you in your day-to-day activities.

And don’t forget our Scholarship programs. Nominate someone now! $1000, $750 and $500 scholarships are available.

Make you plans now to attend!

Peggy Kish RN
