California Association for Nurse Practitioners


Annual Educational Conference

The Don't-Miss Event of the Year

CANP’s 39th Annual Educational Conference, supported by NSO, took place March 17-20, 2016 at the Marriott Newport Beach Hotel & Spa.  Many thanks to NSO and our other 2016 conference sponsors.

Among the many conference highlights was the presentation of the annual CANP Awards.  Congratulations to Karen Macauley, recipient of the Nurse Practitioner of Distinction Award, and to Karen Deck, recipient of the Bridging Health Care Needs Award.

In order to receive Continuing Education credits, conference attendees must complete an online evaluation for each session or workshop they attended. Please anticipate a two-week processing period before certificates will be available in the "My Account" section of All evaluations must be completed by May 31, 2016.

The CANP Annual Educational Conference offers nurse practitioners (as well as physician assistants, nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists and students) an exciting opportunity to learn from some of the most influential figures in the industry. Exhibitors come from all over to showcase the latest products and services. The evening programs offer terrific opportunities to network and socialize.

Don’t miss the association’s premier annual event. Come to earn your continuing education credits, meet nurse practitioners from across the state and get up to speed on the most important developments of the day.

The next rendition of the conference takes place March 16-19, 2017.  Save the dates and make plans to join us in the San Francisco Bay Area for our 40th annual event.  Get a head start on taking advantage of sponsor and exhibitor opportunities for the 2017 conference.
