Speech Guidelines

You have complete creative control over your 10 minute long speech. Please focus on a "a personal topic that will apply to a pre-nursing audience". 


 We realize this may be your first time being a speaker so we've put together these tips and suggestions to help guide your speaking proposal for this specific event and audience:

  • Impact the audience with your strongest insights, personal stories, nursing school experiences and be authentic and be willing to connect deeply. 
  • Don't be afraid to get emotional by making the audience laugh, cry or talk back.
  • Bring it home for the audience simplifying complex subjects while still respecting the audience intelligence. Reflect to your pre-nursing to nursing student journey. How did it feel to get the acceptance notice?
  • Have a take-away message that invites the audience to reflect and think differently about something.
