After skipping the 2020 biennial ANCA convention because of the pandemic, we're back on schedule this year with an updated version of the plans for that convention on 13-16 October 2022, still at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda hotel, 7400 Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda, Maryland.
The Agenda and Speaker Platform has been designed for celebrating the past, capitalizing on the present and connecting for the future. We will be offering 7 contact hours of nursing continuing education – see below for the wide range of topics to look forward to. A selection of research posters will also be available for viewing at your leisure. We will receive our traditional update presentation on the current State of the ANC, and will also be honored with former Chief, ANC and Surgeon General, LTG (Ret.) Patricia Horoho as our Friday luncheon guest speaker.
By popular demand, we've made one- and two-day registrations available for those who can't attend the whole convention. The details about that and the rest of the event are on our registration page, and if you're ready to, you can also go ahead and register there right now on line using your credit card! Or look at these CE speakers and tours we have planned:
We have assembled a distinguished group of presenters who will cover these diverse topics, each for 1 contact hour:
Healing the Wounds of War*

Non-Cancerous Pain Management*
Perceptions of Actual or Near Homelessness of Female Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans and Identification of Needs to Attain Independence*
