Hyatt Regency Minneapolis
Minneapolis, Minnesota

2017 National Conference

Join Us In Celebrating 30 Years!​

The Annual Conference provides a forum for educational opportunities as well as a chance to interact with colleagues and experts in the field of pediatric endocrinology. The faculty will present information on a variety of pediatric endocrine disorders, as well as topics of general interest to nurses and other health care professionals. Teaching methods will include lectures, interactive sessions, discussions, workshops and poster sessions.

The opportunity to develop and continue relationships with your colleagues through networking is one of the key benefits of attending the PENS Conference. Networking offers many tangible benefits to conference participants, including, but not limited to, validating your experience in providing nursing care and developing a better understanding of your practice and your role in care delivery by learning from others who are dealing with similar circumstances, solving the same problems and confronting the same issues. Take advantage of this national gathering of pediatric endocrinology nurses to learn more about national issues and trends.​

Program Objectives:
  • Develop new skills to improve educational and patient outcomes
  • Provide educational opportunities in pediatric endocrinology for nurses and others with expertise in the area
  • Promote the pursuit of nursing practice and research through a research presentation and poster session
  • Provide educational opportunities in the management and treatment of selected endocrine disorders
  • Provide direction for understanding health care changes
