Exhibitor Registration is Now Open for 2023 INPS Annual Conference!

Posted 27 days ago

The Iowa Nurse Practitioner Society invites you to sponsor and/or exhibit at the INPS 2023 Annual Conference. Last year’s hybrid conference had 400 participants who enjoyed the flexibility to join in person and/or online, including visiting exhibitor booths in person or virtually.

We will hold pre-conference skills workshops on Tuesday, November 7th with the main conference being held Wednesday, November 8th through Friday, November 10th . Wednesday through Friday will consist of full day sessions that can be watched in-person or online. Our first speaker will start around 8:00am each day and we’ll finish around 4:30pm.

A tentative agenda can be found here: Tentative Agenda

We will have an extended lunch break every day to increase the traffic flow to the exhibitor booths. In addition, as an incentive for conference attendees to visit your exhibit booth, we will be offering a drawing for those who complete an exhibitor passport card. Details will be provided at a later time.

Note:  INPS reserves the right to deny registration to organizations whose intent is to solicit members to purchase products or services. 

If you know you will be attending but need to have your finance department send a check at a later time, please contact us so that we know to hold your spot. Unpaid spots will NOT BE RESERVED unless we hear from you.

Overview: This conference is designed to meet continuing education needs of advanced practice nurses. All days will focus on discussion of pharmacology and treatment modalities relating to specific illnesses across the lifespan.

 Objectives:

  1.  Explain basic pharmacological and pharmacokinetic principles as they relate to devising a proper therapeutic regimen. 
  2. Utilize evidence-based medicine to select an appropriate therapeutic treatment plan for a given patient condition. 
  3. Provide a diversity of topics and presenters to reflect the diversity of the Nurse Practitioner community and the patients they serve.
  4. Provide skill enhancing workshops.
