Purpose and Objectives
The purpose of the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN) Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) Program is to provide members with opportunities for lifelong learning and assistance in maintaining their certification and licensure requirements, thereby promoting excellence in the provision of rehabilitation nursing care.
ARN’s annual conference provides a forum for attendees to learn and discuss basic knowledge and skills, recent developments in research and science, best practices, and evidence-based recommendations. The content is driven largely by clinical gaps and the associated educational needs as determined by the Program Planning Committee. All of this information is aimed at representing state-of-the-art advances in rehabilitation care, management, and research. Attendees also are provided updates to advocacy and certification, offered multiple opportunities to network with faculty and participants, and given several occasions to interact with product vendors.
After participating in this conference, attendees will increase their ability to
- Examine state-of-the-art approaches to improving rehabilitation patient care and outcomes
- Apply strategic knowledge about current issues facing rehabilitation nurses and the healthcare industry
- Incorporate evidence-based interventions into practice for the rehabilitation of patients with a variety of diagnoses.
Note: Each session has its own specific learning objectives that are included within the session descriptions.
