Share Webinar | The Future of Healthcare: Advanced Practice Registered Nurses

Event Details

Are you a practicing APRN wondering how changes in healthcare and in nursing will affect you and the care you provide? Are you an RN wondering when or if you should move into an advanced practice role? Join us to discuss these topics as it relates to the RWJF/IOM's Future of Nursing report recommendations and healthcare reform. Learn issues concerning the APRN, how this role can lead to better healthcare outcomes and how all nurses can advocate for the APRN to play a significant role in healthcare delivery. 

This is a Gannett Education CE event. Participants who attend the webinar and complete an evaluation will earn 1.0 contact hours of continuing nursing education.
