Uncertain Times and NASN2020

By Devin Dinkel posted 03-25-2020 14:59


NASN knows this is an uncertain time and does not want to appear insensitive to the current pandemic.  We have taken our NASN home page banner down temporarily.  However, we are also mindful of the role that conference, perhaps this year more than ever, plays in connecting, informing, educating, inspiring, celebrating and energizing school nurses around the world.

We know that NASN2020 will happen.  Currently, we are still planning on holding our conference in Las Vegas at the end of June.  However, NASN is watching the situation very closely, and, if necessary, will change to a virtual program platform if a better fit for our attendees.  Either way, we hope to "see" you and all our conference attendees in late June.

Starting today, NASN has extended the early bird registration deadline for another 6 weeks.

If the conference is changed to "virtual", will conference registration charges be the same?
Hi, if the conference is switched to a virtual platform, will our registration fees be prorated or refunded? Crossing my fingers that this question is not applicable!  Thank you, JeanMarie
