Update your knowledge, refine your skills and learn something new in critical care at the National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition (NTI) and the Advanced Practice Institute (API). Our educational conference features the latest innovations in high-acuity and critical care practice, technology, healthcare delivery, evidence-based practices and research.

At NTI, there are boundless educational opportunities aligned with the needs of high-acuity and critical care nurses, who take care of the sickest patients and their families.
