Conference Description

The conference aims to involve nurses in promoting innovation and developing seamless systems for patients and communities. It seeks to strengthen the practice of ambulatory nursing, which is carried out in a variety of settings, including large and small primary and specialty clinics, physician offices, home health, long-term care, public health, community health, occupational health, school health, case management, and other outpatient settings. The conference will feature distinguished local, regional, and national nursing experts who will share clinical and assessment updates, administrative leadership skills, and professional development.
