Kristin Larson, MSN, ANP, GNP, CNN

Want to learn some tips and tricks of the trade? Consider “outside-the-box” ideas on labs and pain management, new ideas in medication reconciliation, how to present your concerns about patient care (and have them be heard), and more. This workshop features a toolbox of techniques to implement in your practice.

Probably the area where providers struggle the most is knowing what to rule in – and what to rule out – when a patient has a chief complaint. Neuro, joints, nausea, bruising. They are all common issues – with a vast differential to consider. Learn more at this workshop.


Nursing Management: Healthy Work Environment

6.0 CH

Rose Markey, MA

“Do unto others.” Yes, we’ve heard it! So, why as nurses do we have such a difficult time treating each other as “colleagues” rather than enemies in the workplace? Explore ideas and ways to improve the setting where you spend 30+ hours week in and week out.
