Advanced Practice Institute
The Advanced Practice Institute™ (API), AACN’s “conference within a conference” at the National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition® (NTI), offers advanced-level sessions and pharmacology contact hours to build advanced practice nurses’ skills and knowledge.
Tailored 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
Many 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 learning as you want to complete after NTI through July 2016.
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.
Time for celebration
Our SuperSessions will entertain, motivate and inspire as you gather together with thousands of your colleagues. For API registrants, the API reception on Tuesday, May 17, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., provides an opportunity to network and celebrate with colleagues the essential role that APRNs play in healthcare excellence.
