PITMAN, NJ–Nephrology nursing is one of the most sophisticated and challenging nursing specialties practiced today. To provide optimum, and safe, patient care, nurses must continually educate themselves about the latest advances.
One of their greatest resources is the American Nephrology Nurses’ Association (ANNA) National Symposium, which will be held April 21 to 24, at the Rio All-Suite Hotel in Las Vegas.
“Our goal is to give attendees the best information on evidence-based practice and professional issues available,” said ANNA President Glenda Payne, MS, RN, CNN. “I believe they will leave this meeting excited about what they’ve learned.”
At the symposium, the nurses will attend sessions taught by leading nephrology experts, network with their colleagues, and enjoy special events. They will also earn continuing nursing education (CNE) and pharmacology credits and meet with industry representatives in the exhibit hall.
Education sessions are identified by areas of practice including acute care, administration, and hemodialysis to help individuals customize their learning. As in previous years, professional advancement courses are included, as well as sessions on research, advocacy, health policy, and administration.
Nurses, technicians, and other health care providers practicing at every level are expected to attend.
The full program and registration details are available on the ANNA Web site.
