It is my pleasure to invite you, your families, and your coworkers to the Happiest Place on Earth! From May 21 - 24, the National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses will be hosting the 36th Annual Congress in Disney World. The theme for this year's Congress is Value, Vision, and Volunteering. Attendees will quickly recognize the Value added to this year's event, including more ways to earn educational credits before, during, and after Congress. However, do not overlook our Vision of fun; from Ortho Olympics and Joint Connection to our annual party, there is plenty of fun to be had at Congress.

 

The excitement does not stop there; you are only minutes away from the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. If that is not enough, you can head downtown to the all-new Disney Springs, featuring unique boutiques, one-of-a-kind restaurants, and world class entertainment! This year's Congress truly has something for everyone, including you. I cannot wait to see you at NAON's Annual Congress in May!
