AMSN Annual Convention


At this time, AMSN is firmly committed to moving forward with the AMSN Annual Convention which is scheduled for October 22-25, 2020, in Las Vegas. However, we are very closely monitoring conditions regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and are working closely with federal, state, and local governments in order to determine whether we will need to make any changes to the schedule as it now stands. The health and safety of our nurses and everyone who attends our convention is the main priority. We will reach out immediately if there are any changes to this plan. If you have any questions regarding our convention this fall, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at


The AMSN Convention will help you improve patient care and connect with other nurses who share your compassion and commitment.
