Join us for the NAHN 2022 Annual Conference

Mark your calendars for the 47th NAHN Annual Conference, scheduled for July 12-15, 2022, at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Miami. Innovations in Care: Addressing Disparities to Create Equitable Outcomes, Navegando La “Nueva Normalidad” will be our theme. This theme combines several key aspects of the current experience in Latino healthcare, including understanding the effects and values of advances in technology; addressing inequities in healthcare and disparities in patient outcomes; and self-care for nurses in stressful and traumatic environments (mind, body and spirit).

The NAHN Annual Conference celebrates the cultural achievements and professional expertise of our membership, and challenges attendees to expand our skillset and knowledge base. Each year the event attracts nurses, physicians, nurse educators, researchers, clinicians, case managers, healthcare innovators, and students from across the country. We are proud to offer the only nursing association meeting dedicated to exploring healthcare issues affecting the Hispanic population and proposing potential solutions.

Throughout the conference, appropriate measures will be in place to protect the health and safety of our attendees and allow us to gather with confidence. NAHN continues to acknowledge the strength and resiliency of NAHN nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic and as leaders who continue to advocate for health equity.

Do you need to build your case to your employer, school, or organization for attending the conference? Check out our NAHN Annual Conference Toolkit for resources.
