Testimonial from a CAPE Participant

"I truly appreciate the effort placed on taking us out of our 'comfort zones,' placing us in situations that we do not encounter routinely and letting us work through them. The environment was welcoming, and fostered learning. I never felt threatened by the challenges and the resources the staff provided were more than helpful.

Rhonda Warren, RN, MSN, CEN
