Spring 2018 National Conference for Nurse Practitioners
 

May 9-12, 2018
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
Lake Buena Vista, Florida

I’m pleased to announce the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners: The Conference for Primary and Acute Care Clinicians that will be held May 9-12, 2018, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. This bi-annual event is sponsored by Wolters Kluwer, publisher of The Nurse Practitioner® journal, and offers you educational sessions relevant to advanced clinical practice giving you the tools you need to improve the overall quality of patient care.

The NCNP 2018 spring event will also meet your continuing education needs by providing evidence-based educational sessions, hands-on workshops, and skill-building sessions that deliver comprehensive, results-oriented patient care strategies. Our expert speakers will cover a broad range of topics for advanced practice clinicians in both primary and acute care settings. Topics include opioid prescribing, challenging cases in dyslipidemia, respiratory infections, lab interpretations, sepsis management, diabetes, renal medication dosing, Hepatitis C, heart failure, and cancer screening, among others. We’ll also cover topics in men’s and women’s health, pediatrics, geriatrics, and more.

CE and Rx credit will be awarded upon completion of the conference. In addition, be sure to take advantage of the hands-on workshops incorporated throughout the program! We’re offering our most popular workshops once again as well as new ones, and we’ve expanded session limits to accommodate more people. Remember to register early to secure your spot— these workshops are a BIG reason why many of you attend, and they almost always sell out!

We think you’ll agree that the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners is the best choice for your continuing education needs. You’ll enjoy a terrific setting, an evidence-based approach to learning, easy access to continuing education, numerous meal functions (which really sets the conference apart from all other events), and best of all, the opportunity to collaborate and exchange ideas with your peers.

See you at the conference!
