How can you stay current with the latest information and guidelines, and accurately weigh the benefits and risks for your specific patients? We invite critical care and trauma nurses from all clinical settings to explore these issues at the Advanced Critical Care & Trauma Nursing conference in Las Vegas! Our expert faculty will  challenge you to take your knowledge to the next level through case study discussions, presentations addressing critical care "hot topics" and information on the latest technologies and evidence-based practice. Join in  conversations with your fellow conference attendees to problem-solve and hear fresh perspectives on issues you and your teams are struggling to resolve. Most importantly, return to work re-energized by the success stories you will all share!

Plan now to join your colleagues for this outstanding educational experience. See you there!
