  • NANN's Conference Goes Virtual!

    In light of the global pandemic and related governmental restrictions and CDC guidelines, NANN has been forced to cancel our in-person Annual Conference planned for New Orleans, Louisiana, October 10-13, 2020. The health and safety of our attendees is our highest concern. Although we will miss being together in person this fall, we look forward to providing neonatal nurses with an innovative virtual conference experience at an incredible value – half the price of our live conference.


    Please join us for NANN Virtual, a brand new virtual conference experience planned for October 21-23, 2020. Offering the latest on hot topics, the most engaging neonatal speakers, and opportunities to connect with industry experts and nursing peers, NANN Virtual has the flexibility and remote capability you need during times like these. Participants can earn more than 30 hours of CNE by watching sessions live during conference dates or viewing them on demand through March 1, 2021. You must register in advance of the conference dates to watch live or on-demand.

    See the agenda and register today!
