Friday, April 13th. APRN practice is evolving. Boundaries between roles may not be so clear. Virtual health care has challenging licensure issues.  Several large health systems are sending representatives to participate in a unique employer panel to share information on the status of implementation of full practice authority in their organizations.  The MN APRN Coalition afternoon Practice Summit will cover these developing issues and more during our APRN Practice Summit.

Do you need to meet the pharmacology requirement for certification? Want to hear a good review of pharmacology related to common health issues. The MN APRN Coalition is proud to offer an all-day pharmacology review on Saturday, April 14th.

We are featuring 2 national speakers. Come to network and learn.
