Conference Program:

The Nurses for Nurses Network combines great education with fabulous travel adventures. We have taken a holistic approach to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to ensure you get the most out of your education-travel experience.

In the spirit of adult learning, the Conference is delivered in two formats: The live presentations delivered in the Conference Room and the online library which is open one month prior to the actual Conference dates. The library is an essential component of the entire Conference program.

The library consists of Conference material supplied by the Presenter which can include any of the following:

  • Research documents
  • Links to external information
  • Recorded Conference presentations
  • Electronic Notepads

The research documents and recorded Conference presentation form part of the Continuing Professional Development activities but are delivered to you prior to the commencement date so that you can start your Conference Program early. If you choose not to undertake these activities prior, there is a two week window post Conference where the library remains open to you. You can also undertake the library activities during the actual Conference.

Below is a snapshot of the Conference Program.
