3rd Pharmacology Reivew: Important COVID-19 Update

Posted 10 days ago by Renee Dahring

In accordance with the Minnesota Department of Health and Center for Disease Control guidance, we are rescheduling our 3rd Annual Pharmacology Review until September 17-18, 2020.  Due to hotel availability in September, the review is now planned for Thursday and Friday.

We are currently contacting speakers to reschedule and hope to offer the same quality content we had already planned. However, minor changes may need to occur but we will still offer all 13.5 pharmacology hours. 

As you know, the Minnesota APRN Coalition is an all-volunteer organization working to improve patient access to, and choice of safe, cost-effective healthcare providers by removing statutory, regulatory, and institutional barriers the prevent APRNs from practicing at the highest level of their education.  In order to do this, we must continue to have ongoing representation at the Capitol and in regulatory agencies. This representation depends on membership and income from this educational event. We are converting registrations to the September dates and hope with this much advance notice, you will be able to join us for another quality pharmacology program. 

We also want you to know that despite a current break in the legislative session due to COVID-19, we have been very active on a number of issues. We hope to move our bill through approval, and make the changes to the Minnesota Commitment statutes to enable us to provide the care our patients need. As we noted in the March newsletter, several bills impacting practice are being monitored and we continue to advocate for provider inclusive language where needed. As a small non-profit organization, we are particularly hard-hit by the pandemic and rely on support from you. 

If you have questions or need more information, please contact us at admin@mnaprnc.org.  Thank you for your understanding and continued support of the Minnesota APRN Coalition and our work to improve patient access to care.
