At the APNA 35th Annual Conference, you'll have the opportunity to earn up to 24+ contact hours during the Virtual or Louisville events and more than 90 contact hours total*.

Scroll down to see the daily schedules for the Virtual option this December 10-12, 2021 and then explore the full Louisville program to see all of the cutting-edge education that is part of your registration. Included with your full conference registration are the 2-Hour sessions (special for this year!) and on-demand session recordings for a full year after the conference. Sessions will be presented at both the Louisville and Virtual options, and will be available on-demand in December/January in the APNA eLearning Center.
