Diane Yeager RN worked as a nurse in Labor & Delivery and Intensive Care for 7 years until 1992 at which point her career shifted to education. For the next 15 years, Diane worked as a Nursing Instructor in Northeast Ohio. Her results were impressive with an NCLEX pass rate for her graduating students of 97% throughout her teaching career. Her impact as a teacher was recognized when, during her fifth year of teaching, she received the Ohio Organization of Practical Nurse Educators' award for Distinguished Practical Nurse Educator of 1996. Diane's success as an educator was due to her enthusiasm for integrating computer technology into her teaching methodology which led to the creation of FreeNurseTutor, launched in 2006. Freenursetutor.com is a unique and completely free website that lets educators and students use a collection of self-paced and learning activities with a focus on interactivity and individualized learning. FreeNurseTutor is now used as an educational supplement by healthcare instructors and students at hundreds of schools. In 2007, Diane followed the trends in healthcare technology and transitioned to a career as an Electronic Health Records trainer. Diane has developed curriculum and instructional materials and trained healthcare personnel during large scale EHR system implementations at major hospital systems. As an EHR trainer, and through continued contact with healthcare educators, it became clear to Diane that most career tech and nursing schools simply do not have a way to prepare their students for the new world of electronic records. She enthusiastically embraced this as a personal challenge and used her experience in education and electronic health records to create an academic EHR system: EHR Tutor. EHR Tutor is designed to immediately deliver the "missing piece" of electronic records to any school's program. More information regarding EHR Tutor can be found at ehrtutor.com.

Karen Mercereau is a nationally recognized visionary leader in healthcare, known for her ability to transcend challenges, and create opportunity from complexity. This was the quality behind her founding of RN Patient Advocates in 2002, for which she received a Purpose Prize Fellowship. A clinical RN for 45 years in diverse intensive care as well as community health settings, Karen was also integral in developing the first hospice in Tucson, AZ. Recognizing the dearth of public health programs available in the AIDS community in the late 1980's, she chaired a countywide consortium to develop AIDs relief programs in Tampa Bay. Karen has also been instrumental in the design and implementation of hospital and health care systems, lecturing nationally on their wider applications. Currently, Karen heads the RN Patient Advocate Learning Intensive in association with the University of Arizona College of Nursing. This immersion learning program for qualified clinical RNs prepares them for the development of their own practices as independent RN Patient Advocates (iRNPAs). Karen is also the leader of the RN Patient Advocate Group Practice in Southern Arizona comprised of independent RN Patient Advocates who provide both individual RN Patient Advocate services as well as community health literacy programs. She is the President of Health Education and Advocacy Leaders, Inc., a foundation she started to support community health literacy programs.
