OAAPN Statewide Conference — The Largest Gathering of APRNs in Ohio
Message from the President
We are only a few short weeks away from our annual statewide conference and I can hardly control my excitement! I look forward each year to October and this conference which is the largest gathering of APRNs in Ohio. I hope to see all of you there because we have some special things planned this year and you do not want to miss any of it.
For starters, this year’s pre-conference was specifically designed based on previous years’ evaluations. Thursday evening, after the conference officially opens, OAAPN has planned the party of all parties, the first ever OAAPN Casino Night! Be sure to be there and test your luck with friends and colleagues, while also enjoying your favorite cocktail. Friday and Saturday’s sessions were also planned with you in mind and based off your evaluations. The speakers are dynamic and topics are unique. Be sure to come, enjoy, learn and meet new people while also promoting APRN practice in Ohio.
Also this year, we will be collecting donations for oncology patients in Ohio and are asking you to bring hats, scarves and gloves, as well as crayons, markers and other items for both adults and children. Please think of someone else when you back your bags for Columbus. If each person would bring one item, we will collect almost 800 items to pass out to our patients who need our help.
Thank you for all that you do for your patients and APRNs in Ohio. We are truly grateful here at OAAPN to have such active members.
