EVER Growing, EVER Strong, EVER Green

34TH ANNUAL CONGRESS

 

May 17 - 20, 2014 | Mirage Resort and Casino | Las Vegas

 

REGISTRATION BROCHURE

 

Join us in Las Vegas for NAON's 34th Annual Congress

Viva Las Vegas! I am thrilled to invite you to join me in Las Vegas, Nevada this May for the National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses 34th Annual Congress. This year's theme, Ever Growing, Ever Strong, Ever Green, is representative not only to NAON but to each individual orthopaedic nurse. Nurses in this generation must always be growing and learning to keep up with the constantly changing demands of the job, they must be strong, both mentally and physically, and they must adapt to a world that is becoming more and more environmentally green. The word "evergreen" by definition means a plant that is green all year round. It continues to grow, stays strong, and adapts during every season. This is not unlike the nurse who is always called upon to deliver results while continuing to grow and adapt no matter the day, month or season.

With outstanding educational sessions, networking opportunities with fellow orthopaedic nurses from around the world, and an exhibit hall full of new ideas and contacts, not everything that happens in Vegas has to stay in Vegas. I look forward to seeing you this May at the NAON Annual Congress!

Educational Sessions

Select one educational session per time period. Seating for breakout sessions is on a first-come, first-served basis. Pre-selection of sessions during registration does not guarantee seating; however, it aids in the planning of room assignments to accommodate attendance. Once we fill a room to capacity, we will close a session. Due to fire code regulations, participants will not be able to sit or stand in the back of the room and we cannot add additional chairs. If a session is closed, participants must select another session where seating is available.

 

We need your help! Complete your Agenda Builder to tell us which sessions you plan to attend, so we can assign sessions to appropriately sized rooms.

 

* Choices do not constitute guaranteed registration or admittance to sessions.

 

* Select only one session per time period.

 

* The session numbers appear before the titles on the website.

 

* All breakout sessions are seated on a first-come, first-served basis.
