“Celebrating our Past, Shaping our Future”
2017 Conference Overview
The 2017 conference theme is “Celebrating our Past, Shaping our Future!” As the premiere resource for practicing I/DD nurses, DDNA is committed to providing quality education programs that include cutting edge content with practical application.
CONFERENCE PROGRAM STRUCTURE – It’s all about the CEs!
DDNA’s 2017 annual conference will be structured a bit differently than in previous years – offering a longer conference program and more accredited continuing education courses and opportunities! The conference registration fee will include 3 ½ full days of conference program and continuing education, offering over 23 hours of continuing education.
As we celebrate our silver anniversary, we would also like to offer our members an additional reason to celebrate with us! With the longer conference program and additional continuing education, this year’s conference rate is 5% below the 2016 conference fees for comparable hours of continuing education. The conference will also offer a pre-conference program, providing 6 additional hours of continuing education, available to all conference attendees as an additional purchase!
The result – over 29 hours of continuing education are available with attendance at all conference and pre-conference programs!
