At the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, less than a mile away from our Washington DC Inn, the American Nephrology Nurses Association (ANNA) 2017 National Symposium will be held from April 7th to 10th. The goal of the ANNA National Symposium is for attendees to Collaborate, Network, and Learn with fellow nephrology nurses from around the world. This symposium is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and network in the nephrology field through the superb educational sessions and connecting with nephrology experts.
What will the ANNA National Symposium schedule look like? The schedule will be chocked full of sessions, speakers, exhibits, networking and socializing events, and a day on Capitol Hill. Friday will kick off the conference with a day on Capitol Hill to increase participation in advocacy and to learn about health policy issues. During your time on the Hill, you will get the chance to discuss the issues that are most essential to the nephrology nurses community.
The next three days will primarily consist of sessions covering a wide-variety of topics relating to nephrology. Some of the session topics include, Acute Care – Safe Working Hours: Empowering Nurses to Take a Stand, Educator – Mentoring and Precepting: How to Make and Keep Talented Nurses, Management of the Pediatric Patient, Exercise and Dialysis: What Can Busy Nephrology Nurses Do?, and many more. Many of the sessions will will be curtailed to a speciality such as Acute Care, so that attendees can learn in-depth on the topics that relate to them.
