Sunrise Sessions — Corporate Supported Satellite Symposia

Sunrise Sessions provide your organization with a unique opportunity to host an exclusive educational session Tuesday, May 19 or Wednesday, May 20, from 7-8:30 a.m. These extremely popular breakfast sessions are designed and planned by the corporate sponsor, from selecting the educational topic and expert presenter to determining the size of the audience. AACN offers NTI attendees continuing education recognition points (CERPs) for Sunrise Sessions. CERPs are an AACN designation for nurses to fulfill continuing education requirements to maintain AACN certifications and are similar, but not equivalent, to a CNE or CME contact hour. Apply before November 15, 2014, to receive great benefits, including:

  • A $2,000 savings on your Sunrise Session fees and a priority slot
  • Greater exposure for your session by being included in NTI promotional materials

Opportunities are limited. If you are interested in a Sunrise Session and would like to discuss the benefits, please contact Susan Flynn at (800) 394-5995, ext. 511 or email

ExpoEd — Education on the Exhibit Floor With Additional Time Slots in San Diego!

NTI exhibitors can offer education on the exhibit floor through ExpoEd activities, which apply concepts and principles about patient care and clinical practice. Activities use a variety of formats — for example, live and multimedia presentations, computer-assisted self-learning and hands-on demonstrations — and must adhere to the high standards of AACN ’s educational plan. ExpoEd presentations may discuss your company's equipment, products and services. Nurses can earn continuing education recognition points (CERPs) toward their AACN certification renewal for these approved educational activities on the show floor. Videotaping of ExpoEd sessions is not allowed without the prior consent of AACN. Visit ExpoEd for all the details, or contact Chelley D'Amato, at (800) 394-5995, ext. 269 or email with questions.
