2018 NCNA Annual Convention Registration is Open!
The 2018 NCNA Annual Convention will be at the Embassy Suites in Concord, NC. Now in our 111th year, the Annual Convention continues to be the best event of the year for nurses in North Carolina, offering incredible opportunities for networking, professional development, and impacting issues that shape the entire profession. “It’s a great re-energizer,” said NCNA Northeast Regional Director Thompson Forbes III, MSN, RN, NE-BC. “[Convention] gets me pepped up about being a nurse. It’s another way to energize me. Remind me of why I’m a nurse and why I got into this profession.” Contribute your voice to the future of the profession while learning from peers and earning valuable contact hours!
