It’s Almost Here: AMSN’s Return to an In-person Convention
It’s almost here! AMSN’s annual convention is just around the corner, and we’re hard at work putting the final touches on the first in-person convention since 2019. It’s been a rough couple of years, and that’s why we’re doing our very best to ensure the best possible experience in San Antonio.
We will have morning yoga where you can start the day with some well-deserved self-care. We have outstanding educational session on topics that are relevant and important to attendees. We are holding a blood drive on Saturday because we wanted to give back to the community and do our part to ensure blood is available for those in need. We have some amazing evening activities on the schedule too! Our exhibit hall opening reception will take place Thursday evening, where you can meet fellow attendees and exhibitors.
Also, please join us Friday evening for the presentation of AMSN awards. We wanted to really celebrate our awards winners and felt that coming together to recognize the achievement of your colleagues and peers would be a great way to do that. Lastly, on Saturday evening we have a fun party planned with a magician and a DJ so you can dance the night away!
We have a free pre-convention workshop for in-person attendees. Sign up to attend “How to Integrate and Leverage Professional Identity in Nursing into your Practice” and learn more about professional identity and how it can help us all navigate and amplify our careers. Did I mention it is free? You can take advantage of this session for no cost at all!
If you haven’t been to an AMSN convention, it’s a fantastic opportunity to rediscover your spark…your why. Year over year, attendees tell us that convention reinvigorates them, and they go back to work rested, excited and eager to share what they learned. That’s what convention is all about: learning, connecting, community. If you have been to convention before, I know you know what I am talking about, and I hope you will encourage friends and colleagues to join you.
Shortly, we are going to be asking attendees to build out their convention schedule, so we know how many of you are planning to attend which sessions. You can win some great prizes for doing so, and it will help us ensure we have the room to accommodate everyone in the sessions they would like to attend. Stay tuned for more information and start reviewing the convention schedule so you know what sessions you want to attend.
