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.
CANP’s 36th Annual Educational Conference took place March 21-24, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel & Spa in Monterey. More than 500 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 California’s Central Coast.
Among the highlights was the keynote presentation by Dr. Susan Apold, the former President of the American College of Nurse Practitioners who is widely regarded as one of the leading national voices in support of nurse practitioners. Dr. Apold’s address recapped the achievements and challenges of legislative and regulatory efforts to permit NPs to practice to the full extent of their training and expertise.
The event also featured the announcement of the annual CANP Awards. Former CANP President Surani Kwan received the Nurse Practitioner of Distinction Award, while Debra Palmer was presented the Bridging Health Care Needs Award.
In addition to education and networking opportunities, attendees enjoyed the vendor expo, in which exhibitors from around the world showcased the latest in health care products and services.
The conference was made possible through the generous sponsorship of the association’s partners at Nurses Service Organization.
Make plans now to attend the 37th Annual Educational Conference, taking place March 20-23, 2014 at the Marriott Hotel and Spa in Newport Beach.
