Renee Davis, MSN, RN-BC, has spent many years as an educator in both nursing professional development and academia and maintains her certification as a Nursing Professional Development Specialist. During her initial nursing years at the bedside, she worked in a variety of mainly medical-surgical settings, such as rehab/orthopedic, home care, short stay/ambulatory surgery, and neurosurgery. As an educator, she gained incredible insights as the lead learning management system contact, support and education coordinator for system-wide nursing education within a centralized, corporate education department of a multi-facility health system. Those experiences helped her to develop into a nursing educational technology integration expert. She is currently an independent consultant with her company, ProDevo Design and Consulting Group, as well as an online adjunct lecturer.

Renee has conducted national and local presentations on the utilization and integration of educational technology in nursing academia and professional development. Her most recent national presentation was at the 2018 Association for Nursing Professional Development Annual Convention, where she conducted an interactive session on gamification and increased integration of educational technology in Nursing Professional Orientation.
