Annual Conference


A Seat at the Table: Winning Together for Student Health
June 30 - July 3, 2020 (orientation June 29, 2020)

After thoughtful consideration, NASN is transitioning NASN2020 and NASN2020 Livestream into a virtual experience.

We are excited about this new virtual direction as it provides our community an even more inclusive opportunity to come together in a time when we truly need each other. Virtual NASN2020 will kick off on the same dates, with a new look, an updated lineup including exciting new additions, and exciting new approaches to speaker engagement and interactivity with attendees.

The educational program will include many of the previously scheduled general sessions, breakout sessions and posters. The program will also include a virtual exhibit hall, annual business meeting, award recognition, vendor demonstrations, and opportunities for engagement and interaction-- just all in a virtual environment. This was felt to be the best and safest course of action after careful consideration of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

NASN2020 Conference Learning Outcomes

As a result of participating in this educational activity, learners will be able to

  • Identify three emerging student health trends that impact your student population and a resource that can be used to learn more on those topics.
  • Articulate two new evidence-based practices learned at conference that will be used to promote student health, social and academic success, or healthy communities.
  • Identify three potential new partners/partnerships to collaborate with to advance student health and the role of the school nurse as a health leader in the school setting.
  • Distinguish two ways current practice of care, data collection, or policy development differs from the information presented at conference and develop a plan to change at least one practice.
  • Apply one new concept regarding advocacy and data that can be used to articulate to educators and decision-makers about the role of the school nurse in the 21st century.
  • Identify two new resources from NASN and exhibitors that can be used to improve practice.
