Posted about 1 year ago by Nancy Clover

We are getting "down to the wire" for registration for the PAAOHN Conference, March 7-9 in Lancaster, PA. This is an excellent opportunity to earn 14 CEUs applicable towards your Nursing license renewal, as well as networking with other nurses from around the state.

We have a block of rooms reserved at the Marriott - see the flyer attached. However, this block is only on reserve until tomorrow - February 13. After that it will be space available. We really want to see all of you there if possible.

In addition, this conference will allow you to network with exhibitors, sponsors, and the other attendees, as well as your Board Members. Don't miss this chance to meet peers and discuss common problems of an OHN.
