Description

Are you tired of the same old nursing seminars? Tired of trying to find the time to attend one to get the credits you need?
This year, try something NEW! Attend a Cruise Seminar. Travel with The Cruise Academy to the Western Caribbean and you’ll
earn 14 credits over the course of your 7 night cruise. Best of all… when you’re not attending a seminar, you’ll be able to enjoy all of
the amenities of this luxury cruiseship! You can relax poolside with a good book, visit the spa, or simply do nothing; the choice is
yours!
Our seminars allow you to combine education with a vacation… Use your professional development days instead of all vacation
days! Deduct a portion of the cost from your taxes! Many employers have sent their nurses on our past seminars! Present this to
your employer, and you might be surprised at the positive reception you receive. Cruise seminars are a great value because they
include your accommodations, meals and entertainment all in one venue. You’ll also meet other nurses from various educational
backgrounds, specialties and cultures that you can mingle, network & forge new friendships with on your worry-free vacation
seminar! Bring a spouse or significant other, bring a friend, plan a ‘girl’s getaway’ with your colleagues; the discounted prices
are the same for everyone; only nurses attending the seminar will be charged the seminar fee.
