ANPD Networking Sessions

Nursing professional development (NPD) team members often lack the opportunity to network with fellow NPD professionals to identify the latest evidence and innovation in their specialty practice. Because opportunities for face-to-face interaction are limited, ANPD has created online networking sessions to narrow this gap. All NPD team members are encouraged to attend ANPD’s networking opportunities to share innovations, best practices, and engage with the NPD community. Each session will have an identified theme for dialogue. You will virtually meet with a group of NPD team members and be led by a facilitator to network and discuss the designated session topic.
