The inaugural conference, set for 18-20 May 2022 in Alabama, US, will feature 20 TED talk-style advanced clinical and leadership continuing education sessions, inspirational speakers, and networking and self-care opportunities.
“Specialty certified emergency, trauma and transport nurses need advanced continuing education to practice at the top of their specialties, and they deserve recognition for their exceptional contributions to patient care and emergency nursing,” said BCEN CEO Janie Schumaker.
“BCEN Learn Live is designed to celebrate, educate, recognize and transform the world of emergency nursing with engaging expert presenters, innovative formats, nurse recognition including BCEN’s annual award winners, and a healthy dose of self-care,” Schumaker added.
Clinical presentations and networking opportunities
The May 18-20, 2022, conference at the Perdido Beach Resort will feature:
- 20 TED talk-style advanced clinical and leadership presentations
- ‘Certibration’ certification celebration breakfast featuring Emmy Award-winning motivational speaker, author, musician, and workforce expert Clint Pulver
- Beach-side networking reception, yoga and opportunities to recharge and re-energize
Conference sessions focus on critical clinical situations where emergency nurses must adapt to time-sensitive patient needs and explore the impact of professional development on the field of emergency nursing and patient outcomes.
A second 2022 BCEN Learn Live conference is planned for November at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. BCEN 2022 Distinguished Award and National Certification Champion Award honorees will be acknowledged at the conferences.
