Preserving Our Past, Capitalizing on the Present, Embracing the Future

ANCA Convention

At the banquetThe Army Nurse Corps Association has reunion-type conventions every other year, in even-numbered years, with programs characterized by the motto, Connect * Learn * Build. These gatherings honor all that our association values: opportunities for social interaction and networking; first-class continuing education from highly sought-after speakers; bringing different services, components and Department of Veterans Affairs nurses together; and specialty sessions in such areas as research and education. 

We welcome with open arms all active, retired, and former Active, Reserve, and National Guard members of the Army Nurse Corps to join ANCA if they have not already, and come with us as we meet for reminiscence, fellowship, continuing education, networking, and oh, yes, a little organizational business, every two years at different places around the United States. If you're a present or former Army Nurse Corps officer and interested in joining us at our conventions, check our Membership page for eligibility information. 

2020 Convention HotelOur next biennial convention will be 1-4 October 2020 in Bethesda, Maryland. We will as usual have pre-convention tours on 1 October, and the following days will include continuing education presentations on such topics as Opioid Management and Near Death Experiences in Service Members and Veterans, in addition to a large collection of research and evidence-based practice posters.  In addition to full-meeting registration, we will be offering one- and two-day registration options to accommodate those unable to attend the entire meeting.

Save the date! And stay tuned for more details as they are developed and the opening of registration.

And as you begin planning for the convention, you may want to consider joining the Military Officers Association of America Nurse Advocates Virtual Chapter and Military Healthcare Team Cruise to Bermuda prior to the Convention, out of Baltimore for five nights, leaving 26 September. Details here
