NPAC 2020
National Conference for
Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care

October 21-25, 2020
Sheraton New Orleans Hotel


On behalf of the NPAC 2020 Conference Planning Committee, I would like to cordially invite you to attend the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care 2020! This year’s conference will be held October 21-25, 2020 at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel adjacent to the famous French Quarter, with the theme, Let the Good Times Roll!

It is my honor to help plan this conference every year. As nurse practitioners (NPs) at the forefront of acute care, it is important for us to get together and learn from each other. Sharing our knowledge makes us better NPs so that we can continue to provide superior care to our patients. 

This year, attendees will have numerous and varied opportunities to expand their knowledge over two days of pre-conference workshops and sessions as well as the three days of the general conference. There will be 6 Advanced Procedures Workshops (APWs), 8 Pre-Conferences, 2 refereed Poster Sessions, and 18 General Sessions, including 7 focused specifically on Updates in Acute Care Pharmacology. Whatever your needs, there is something for everyone.

Thank you for letting me be a small part of your NP career, and I look forward to reconnecting with all of you at NPAC 2020.

Let the Good Times Roll!
