Meet us at NCNP!

Livestream conference is April 19-21, but sessions will be available online through July 18 for learning and earning credit


Our less-than-one-week countdown to the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners (NCNP) virtual spring event starts now! Join us at The Nurse Practitioner live next week from April 19 to 21 for an expert-designed and -led program developed specifically to help you stay current in your clinical practice and earn continuing education credits conveniently—either from home or on the go—at your own pace. Busy during the April 19-21 livestream? No problem! Conference sessions are recorded to be available, even if you're not in real time, for 90 days after the event. Register now to learn and earn credits flexibly through July 18, regardless of live attendance.

About the NCNP spring event

For the uninitiated, twice-yearly NCNP provides the full conference experience in a virtual format: It retains networking prospects, eliminates travel hassle and the struggle to choose between simultaneous sessions, and adds benefits—such as the ability to rewatch previously attended sessions—that are not possible with or typical of in-person conferences. This spring's installment offers all participants, regardless of when they participate, the opportunity to earn up to 55 CE and 31.5 Rx credits. NCNP's first-rate planning panel—led by Dr. Margaret A. Fitzgerald—devised a comprehensive spring program with more than 70 topical, cutting-edge sessions to guide NPs through clinical advances, shifts in best-practice guidelines and ideologies, and other developments in the healthcare sphere of which they need to be aware.

You'll find me attending or monitoring various sessions, including:

  • the keynote address, “RSV, COVID-19, and Influenza: Lessons Learned," delivered by conference chairperson Dr. Fitzgerald and Dr. Anne Dabrow Woods;
  • “New Drugs in Dermatology: And There Are A LOT!";
  • What You Need to Know About GERD, Dyspepsia, Dysphagia and Barrett's in 2023"; and
  • ​​“Diabesity: Weighing in on the Diabetes-Obesity Conundrum."

​I'm also looking forward to tuning in to several sessions after the livestream event: In particular, Dr. Laurel Short of our partner organization, the Kansas Advanced Practice Nurses Association (KAPN), will be headlining a session on pharmacologic migraine management, and Dr. Wendy L. Wright, who previously appeared on the journal's podcast, will be educating us further on how to address vaccine hesitancy in practice. (ICYMI: The Nurse Practitioner published original research on vaccine hesitancy in our March 2023 special pediatrics issue that supported the effectiveness of one possible intervention.)
