Scientific Sessions Planning Committee Update

Ginger Mars, RN, MSN, NP-c, CCRN, CPSN

The Call for Abstracts for the Annual Convention has opened. Have you ever given any thought to being a speaker or have some useful tips/pearls that you would like to share? How about a poster highlighting your research or protocols/decision tree? The key to a successful convention is participation and engagement. The SSPC seeks to find topics that are relevant to nursing practice at ALL levels. For 2017, we have received confirmation for some truly incredible speakers and are well underway in developing our Aesthetic and Reconstructive Workshops. On behalf of the SSPC, I encourage you to attend what we expect to be an amazing, innovative and fun Convention.
