Your Invited!
Critical care nurses continue to encounter complex challenges in their ICU and trauma practice settings, and emphasis on the importance of utilizing evidence based approaches to meet these challenges continues to increase dramatically. Research progresses, clinical practice evolves and new concepts are incorporated into policies and procedures. 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 nurses from all practice settings to explore these issues at the Advanced Critical Care Nursing Summit in Snowmass! Take your knowledge to the next level and investigate ways to address your challenges in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains. Enjoy dialogue and networking with both faculty and colleagues in a setting guaranteed to provide you with a fresh perspective.

Highlights of the conference include:
Interaction with nationally recognized experts who actively practice and face the same daily dilemmas as you.
Special attention by the speakers to the clinical applications of the information presented.
Concurrent Session choices allowing you to tailor the program to address your individual knowledge gaps and clinical interests.
Opportunities to collaborate and build professional relationships with peers from across the country.
A conference schedule designed not only for in-depth learning, but also for relaxation and exploration with family and friends in breath-taking Snowmass!
