More than 60 sessions for APRNs
Developed by nationally recognized advanced practice professionals, API sessions are taught at the proficient or expert level, specifically for APRNs. A wide range of hot topics includes healthcare reform, legal issues, role negotiation, the APRN value proposition, healthy work environments, competency assessment, value-based purchasing and political engagement.
Flexible ways to learn and earn CE
More than 200 API and NTI sessions will be recorded and offered online with continuing education (CE) contact hours for 60 days after the conference, adding as much extra learning as you can complete after NTI through July 2015.
Deeper dialogue on key issues
Preconferences and the NTI Summit offer deeper understanding and hands-on experiential learning on topics that influence your practice. Explore these complex issues with leading experts and your peers. For APRNs, the Intensive Neurological Exam Workshop, Suturing Skills and Palliative Care Boot Camp for the Non-Palliative Care Specialist are featured preconferences.
