This year we have given a different meaning to Convention! Instead of one 3-day span of events, we are offering many different educational “tracks.” You can sign up for as many or as few as you’d like–they each have their own registration form.
Each registration form also lists the option of also registering for WNA’s Membership Assembly on Saturday. The Membership Assembly is for members and nonmembers alike. It includes a keynote speaker in the morning, the Annual Meeting of the membership, and the Awards Luncheon.
The different tracks will provide a variety of educational offerings of interest to all Registered Nurses and students too. A list of programs being offered is below; much more information, including agenda, presenters, and content are available if you click on the individual session names. SEE YOU THERE!
HANDOUTS – any handouts submitted by presenters are posted on the individual program pages (click on program links below). Links to handouts are clearly marked in red. Not all programs/sessions will have a handout. Download/print copies of these handouts as desired – NO PAPER COPIES WILL BE PROVIDED AT THE CONFERENCES unless otherwise noted on the program webpage.
There is free Wi-Fi at the Madison Marriott west – consider bringing a laptop/tablet to view handouts during the conference and ‘go green’!

Call for References
References adopted using the Dialogue Forum process. Members are encouraged to submit a proposal on an emerging topic impacting nurses that you believe WNA should be promoting. The Reference Committee will review the proposal to determine if it is duplicative of a current WNA Position, meets the guidelines of an emerging topic, or if it conflicts with WNA’s mission, goals, or purpose. The reference proposal application and guide can be found on the Reference page.
