More than 600 nurse practitioners and other health care professionals gathered for the event, taking advantage of ample opportunities to earn continuing education credits, network with peers and soak in the surrounding splendor of one of California’s iconic coastal communities.

Among the conference highlights was the announcement of the annual CANP Awards. Kristin Kopelson of Los Angeles received the Nurse Practitioner of Distinction Award, while Wendy Smith of Santa Rosa was presented the Bridging Health Care Needs Award.

The conference was made possible through the generous contributions of numerous sponsors, including the presenting sponsor, Nurses Service Organization.
