Continuing Education Purpose and Objectives


Sponsored by Wolters Kluwer, publisher of The Nurse Practitioner® journal, the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners (NCNP) offers evidence-based educational sessions relevant to advanced clinical practice that will give you the tools you need to improve the overall quality of patient care.

This biannual event will also meet your continuing education (CE) needs by offering credits for skill-building sessions that deliver comprehensive, results-oriented patient care strategies for a variety of conditions. Our expert speakers will cover a broad range of topics for advanced practice clinicians in primary, acute, urgent, and emergency care. CE and advanced pharmacology (Rx) credits will be awarded upon completion of the conference.
