By AANAC - March 16, 2018

It was an absolutely wonderful experience! Great topics, great speakers, and a great time! There is no other conference in our field like it…exceptional!

1.       Top-Notch Educational Opportunities

From an expert panel, to real-time updates from CMS representatives about national initiatives, to the hottest and most pressing topics in long-term care, the AANAC Annual Conference’s educational sessions are a great way to improve your knowledge in your field, find new ways of performing your job, and discover what’s coming in the future for LTC. The expertise you’ll gain will help you gain confidence and the energy to return to your facility ready to implement change and tackle all sorts of challenges.

2.       Networking and Making Connections

The nurse assessment coordinator position is a job with few allies sometimes, and it’s good to know there are others out there who understand and face similar struggles. The AANAC Conference provides many opportunities for networking and getting to know other MDS professionals from across the nation, with events such as the First-Timer Meet and Greet, Conversations That Matter, the Exhibit Hall, and the SimpleLTC Ignite™ Theater.


3.       Discover New LTC Tools, Resources, and Services to Make Your Job Easier

The AANAC Conference exhibit hall hosts the best vendors in the field with innovative products and services you will love to learn about and use. Plus, this year you get to play Exhibit Hall Poker to win fun prizes, enjoy some delicious food, take fun souvenir photos at the Photo Booth, and many of the vendors also offer drawings you can enter to win!


4.       Celebrate Your Profession

LTC professionals work so hard and they deserve to be recognized! Each year at the conference, AANAC hosts a special lunch to honor the award, grant, and scholarship recipients of the year who have shown their dedication to improving long-term care and the life and care of residents. Cheer for your outstanding peers and all you have achieved this year!

5.       Fun!

Working in long-term care is rewarding, but sometimes we need to allow ourselves to step out of the stressful professional space and relax! AANAC Conference is always held in an entertaining location in order to ensure attendees can take a little time for vacation and fun outside of the learning experience. Add an extra day before or after the conference this year to spend some time in Las Vegas and make some great memories along the way with us!

We can’t wait to see you in Las Vegas!
