We’re delighted to announce the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners. The Conference for Primary & Acute Care Clinicians, April 23-26, 2014 at the Hilton Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. Sponsored by Wolters Kluwer Health, publisher of The Nurse Practitioner journal, the conference offers you educational sessions that will renew the practical and critical thinking skills you need to improve the overall quality of patient care. 

Each year, our conference committee works diligently to surpass the quality, content, and expectations of the previous meeting. Our 2014 conference will be no exception – we'll use the past conference's evaluation results to plan timely concurrent sessions, skill-building session, and hands-on workshops. Plus, our exhibits, educational content, and poster presentations will be more lively and cutting-edge than ever before. NCNP is truly one of the most informative programs available to those involved in advanced practice nursing for both primary and acute care.

Program Goals and Objectives

The purpose of the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners is to offer interactive tutorials, presentations, and practical workshops that promote clinical excellence and improve the quality of care that health care practitioners provide. By attending this conference and participating in the educational sessions, you’ll be able to:

  • Consult with experts in primary and acute care, as well as clinical subspecialties.
  • Discuss issues related to family, adult, pediatric, geriatric, women’s health, legal, and mental health, in both the primary and acute care settings.
  • Develop your assessment and clinical management skills in hands-on and skill-building workshops.
  • Evaluate current and new treatment methods and pharmacologic therapies..
  • Identify issues that affect advanced practice, including reimbursement, malpractice, clinical practice guidelines, and using the latest technologies in the industry.

We also encourage you to share your research findings as well as your tips, tricks, techniques and expertise as a presenter in our poster session. Display details of your clinical innovations and give colleagues information they can take home and apply in their work settings.
