PHILADELPHIA—Education is the most important way for today’s nurses to stay current on new technologies, treatments and healthcare policies. Nursing2012 Symposium: The Conference for Clinical Excellence, will feature the latest information from the industry’s leading experts. It will be held April 25–28, 2012, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The conference is sponsored by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, publisher of Nursing2012, and part of Wolters Kluwer Health.
The 2012 symposium has several new clinical features and a broadened slate of courses designed for nurses who provide care directly to patients, as well as those who are managers and leaders.
The symposium is based on core topics such as heart failure, trauma, pain management, assessment skills, healthy work environments, and more. Attendees also earn contact hours, network with colleagues, attend special events and meet with vendors and industry representatives in the exhibit hall.
“According to recent Gallup Polls, Americans continually vote for nurses as their most trusted professionals," said Nursing2012 Editor-in-Chief Linda Laskowski-Jones, RN, MS, ACNS-BC, CEN, FAWM.
“Nurses are extremely dedicated to learning how to provide safe and effective patient care. The symposium provides the courses they need and want most, and that translates directly to better outcomes."
