Notice: The 2020 National Symposium Is Now a Virtual Event

COVID-19 has impacted our daily lives, including the ANNA National Symposium scheduled for August 30-September 2, 2020 in Orlando, FL. After careful consideration with the health and safety of attendees at the forefront, the ANNA Board of Directors has decided to pivot the 2020 National Symposium to a fully virtual conference to be held August 29-31, 2020.

ANNA has reimagined this 2½ day meeting in innovative and creative ways, while retaining many ANNA traditions. The symposium will include the Nephrology Nurse Recognition program, an Exhibitor Directory, and many of the high-quality speakers that you registered to hear. There will be networking opportunities to engage with speakers and other attendees during the live sessions. If you cannot attend the live sessions, you will have access to these sessions in the ANNA Online Library at your convenience. Don’t miss ANNA’s first ever fully virtual National Symposium!

Please note: All event times are Eastern Time Zone.
