CHICAGO—August 13, 2020: The Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN) is proud to announce that the ARN Annual Conference, REACH 2020, will be held virtually October 20–22, marking the first time ARN has offered this important event in an entirely online format.
Contribute to your specialty and gain leadership experience by volunteering with ARN! ARN members are qualified to participate in the open Call for Volunteers. You don't have to be an expert – you just need to dedicate some time! There are many ways for you to get involved, based on your expertise and the amount of time you wish to commit.
ARN will host a virtual Q & A with rehabilitation nursing expert Michele Cournan, DNP RN ANP-BC FNP CRRN, to answer questions from ARN members and the rehab nursing community about the COVID-19 healthcare crisis. This may include discussion on various topics such as caregiver training, guidelines for COVID-19 testing, team management strategies, etc.

We're recording! If you miss the live event, you can catch up on demand.

This year, things are going to look a bit different. We still want you to be able to show off all your hard work without the extra worry. For ARN REACH 2020, you will not be required to physically attend the conference to present a poster, paper, or case study abstract.
The 2020 ARN Annual Conference, REACH, will take place October 21–24 in San Antonio, TX. We are accepting abstracts for papers, case studies, and posters, reflective of quality improvement, evidence-based practice, research, education, leadership, and/or program evaluation until May 1 (new, extended deadline).
