GREETINGS FROM AANP PRESIDENT

Stephen A. Ferrara

Dear colleague, 

On behalf of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP), the most trusted provider of quality continuing education (CE) for all nurse practitioners (NPs), I invite you to register for the 2024 AANP Fall Conference, Sept. 19-22, in Reno, Nevada. Join us as we connect with colleagues, discuss the latest clinical insights and explore best practices for health care leaders.

Over 90 on-site sessions featuring endocrine, pediatrics acute and primary care, psychiatric-mental health and women’s health topical areas offer the opportunity for you to earn up to 18 contact hours (CH) of CE credit. In-person attendees also have free access to the fall online, on-demand platform to earn even more CE credit. Choose from specific therapeutic areas or from a variety of topical areas — whichever best meets your specific needs. Interact with other NPs who work in these specialty areas who will impact this overall experience and who could potentially influence career trajectories. Industry-sponsored events and an Exhibit Hall round out this year’s outstanding program.

While in Reno, take a deep breath as you enjoy the incredible mountain views. You have the options to slow down and relax or take advantage of various outdoor recreational activities. The Grand Sierra Resort, our conference host venue, is spectacular with spas, a driving range, interactive exhibits and much more!

On behalf of the AANP Board of Directors, I invite you to join us to gain new perspectives and create lasting memories.

I look forward to seeing you!

Stephen A. Ferrara, DNP, FNP-BC, FAANP, FAAN

TOPICAL AREAS

Five topical areas will be presented at the 2024 AANP Fall Conference. Within each topical area, registered attendees can choose from a number of sessions on a variety of therapeutic areas — or select sessions from multiple topical areas to create your own personalized conference experience!

Cardiovascular

From foundational concepts to advanced diagnostic techniques, pharmacotherapy, lifestyle interventions and emergent trends, this track equips NPs with essential skills to diagnose, manage and prevent cardiovascular diseases effectively. Explore the latest advancements in cardiac assessment and treatment modalities, enhancing your ability to provide comprehensive care to patients with cardiovascular conditions (i.e., heart failure, rheumatic heart disease, pulmonary hypertension).

Pediatrics, Acute and Primary Care

This track provides an exciting opportunity for NPs working in acute and critical care settings to hear the latest evidence-based updates on a variety of topics, including interprofessional practice, neurodevelopmental disorders, cardiology, toxicology, pain and sedation, sepsis and immunization updates.

Endocrine

Delve into the complexities of hormonal regulation, diagnostic methodologies, therapeutic interventions and emerging trends in endocrinology. From understanding the pathophysiology of common endocrine disorders such as diabetes, thyroid disorders and adrenal diseases to mastering advanced treatment modalities and patient education techniques, this track provides NPs with comprehensive knowledge and skills essential for delivering high-quality endocrine care.

Psychiatric-Mental Health

Patients often view the primary care setting as more acceptable or accessible for mental health care than a specialty setting. Therefore, primary care NPs are on the front lines for the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. Research trials consistently demonstrate the effectiveness of integrated care for mental disorders — and yet primary care providers and systems are overburdened, and clinicians sometimes lack knowledge and confidence to practice to the full scope of their NP roles. This topical area provides information to improve the delivery of mental health services in primary care; likewise, it enhances and extends the skill set for the competent mental health provider. 

Women's Health

Patients often view the primary care setting as more acceptable or accessible for mental health care than a specialty setting. Therefore, primary care NPs are on the front lines for the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. Research trials consistently demonstrate the effectiveness of integrated care for mental disorders — and yet primary care providers and systems are overburdened, and clinicians sometimes lack knowledge and confidence to practice to the full scope of their NP roles. This topical area provides information to improve the delivery of mental health services in primary care; likewise, it enhances and extends the skill set for the competent mental health provider.

WELCOME TO RENO!

Brace yourself because Reno is about to pull you in all different directions. Commonly known as the Biggest Little City in the World, here you can rock climb in the heart of downtown and rock out on the top of a mountain. Rent a kayak and try out your whitewater skills on the river or take yourself for a spa day at one of the many casino resorts in Reno.

Welcome To Reno

TRAVELING TO RENO

The Grand Sierra Resort is an 8-minute drive, 2.5 miles north of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport and a 10-minute drive, 2.6 miles east of the Amtrak station in Reno.

GETTING AROUND RENO

One of the easiest ways to explore the area is by rental car, giving you the freedom to explore the entire Reno Tahoe region. Not wanting to rent a car, but still looking for the freedom a vehicle offers? You can take advantage of rideshare and taxi services available. If you’re looking for a unique way to get around downtown and Midtown then check out Pineapple Pedicabs, Reno’s fun bicycle transportation service.

 

In addition to shuttles and rentals cars, Reno has a variety of public transportation services available. The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) offers bus routes throughout the Reno area, including the RTC RAPID Virginia Line which provides convenient access to stops along Virginia Street, from downtown to Meadowood Mall. For more information on public transportation in Reno, see the complete and up-to-date RTC schedule and route map.
