Region 7 honors Chapter Adviser Laura Bratcher.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Laura Bratcher, RN, BSN, CCRN-CSC, Chapter Advisory Team (CAT) representative for Region 7 (Florida), was recognized for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the region Feb. 29 at the North Central Florida Chapter's critical care conference "Swamped With Knowledge" in Gainesville, Fla.

Chapter advisers serve as liaisons between chapters and National AACN, providing guidance, assistance and support to chapters as they "live the mission" of AACN by providing quality education while promoting AACN's key initiatives: the Beacon Award, Certification and Healthy Work Environments.

Bratcher has been the CAT for Region 7 for two years; her term ends June 30, 2008. She is a great asset to her region and home chapter, the North Central Florida Chapter. She is a former president of this chapter and has been actively involved in "Swamped With Knowledge."

Plans for next year's conference are already under way, and as we say in Gainesville, "Welcome to 'Swamped With Knowledge' - beware, you just may learn something."
