Waltham, MA Conference
Clinical Essentials: NPACE Intensive Skills Training
July 13-16, 2020

Attention Recent Graduates!

Congratulations on your successful completion of a Nurse Practitioner program! Do you find, though, that you still have questions to be answered? Desire to learn or improve upon some skills to prepare for your first NP job? Then join us as we present our first Clinical Essentials NPACE Intensive Skills Training conference.

This is not your typical NPACE conference. At this “bootcamp” format conference in Waltham, you’ll learn about topics such as contract negotiations, malpractice, and documentation so that you can feel more confident in your role. And you’ll have the opportunity for hands-on training with NP experts on topics such as joint injections and dermatology procedures. We look forward to having you join us!

4-DAY CONFERENCE ADMISSION
General Attendee – $149.00

All registrations are subject to a $50 non-refundable administration fee.
