Aspire to Trailblaze

Nursing professional development (NPD) practitioners and nurse educators are trailblazers. They are champions for change, using evidence and experience to pave the way for their organizations and lead them into the future of healthcare. Join your fellow NPD pioneers – in-person – for the first time in nearly three years for a re-imagined immersive education experience that will inspire and empower you to be a role model and change agent. These four days will provide new knowledge, professional development, innovation, and collaboration, so that you can return to your organization prepared to demonstrate a dedication to patient advocacy that meets and exceeds the expectations of your organization’s leaders.

Convention Update: The ANPD Board of Directors remain committed to moving forward with Aspire to Trailblaze as planned. As excited as we are to be together again, we understand that you may have reservations or restrictions that will prevent you from joining us in San Antonio. To provide more time and flexibility, we’ve removed the early registration deadline, so you can register at any time and still secure the lowest rates available. In the spirit of flexibility, the ANPD NPD Program team is also planning a robust 2-day online education experience during NPD Week (September 11-17, 2022). All registered, in-person Aspire to Trailblaze attendees will also receive access to this virtual event. Please watch for registration to open for individuals and groups later this year.
