PENS 2019 Conference
April 25-28, 2019
Hyatt Regency Long Beach

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.
