“Summer Nursing Conventions, Near and Far” by Amy Titmus, MSN, RNC
From May 15-20, the National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition (NTI) is coming to Washington D.C. for the very first time. NTI is sponsored by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN). This year’s theme is Act with Intention. Designed by President Beth Hammer, encouraging us to ask ourselves, each time we act, “Why am I doing this?” “How will it help my patient?” and “If it won’t help, how can I stop doing it?”
The Association for Women’s Health, Obstetrics and Neonatal Nursing (AWHONN) is also having their annual convention June 12-16 in Nashville, TN. The theme will be, “Sharing Science, Finding Solutions for OB, Women’s Health and Neonatal Nurses.”
Why attend conventions? They’re a great opportunity to:
- network with peers, colleagues, see old friends, make new ones
- learn from renowned national experts how to handle the things you face every day
- earn CE credits
- learn about newest technology and methods
- renew your professional pride and passion
- update your professional portfolio
- have great fun.
