Enhance Your Education at the Critical Care Exposition

Added to Collection

With more than 280 exhibitors and 10.75 hours of exhibit time over two days (5.75 hours unopposed by clinical sessions), the Critical Care Exposition — the largest trade show for acute, progressive and critical care nurses — is an essential part of your NTI experience. When you visit the Critical Care Exposition, you can actively participate in hands-on demonstrations, ask questions, give feedback to healthcare manufacturers about their products, and make recommendations for improvements in the equipment, devices and supplies.

ExpoEd in-booth experiences expand your learning opportunities. More than 150 ExpoEd clinical topics will be presented in 30-minute sessions for two days by more than 30 exhibitors. Visit the seven ExpoEd Learning Centers, where you can learn techniques and best practices to ensure patient safety and improve outcomes. As always, ExpoEd learning qualifies for continuing education recognition points (CERPs).

In addition, see the latest career opportunities at booths for more than 100 healthcare facilities and systems, staffing services, travel nurse specialists, the military and many colleges and universities. Supported by American Nurse (booth 1530), the official journal of the American Nurses Association.
