CURRENTS, MED-ED’s Annual Nursing Conference, is a multi-track, four-day event that offers a variety of lectures packed with the most current evidence-based research and best practice findings. This year’s conference theme addresses the Institute of Medicine (IOM) special report titled “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.” One of the elements listed in this report states: “Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training.” MED-ED believes that by advancing professional development, healthcare providers are better positioned to accomplish this goal.
CURRENTS 2014 is your opportunity to learn about the latest developments in many aspects of patient care and connect with other nurses who are investing in their future by growing their skill set—all while taking time away from the daily grind.
