*Please note that the ARN DEI Listening Session has been postponed, and the November 3 Zoom session has been cancelled.
ARN's core values are to provide visionary leadership, professionalism, community, client care, and vision for the future and serve our membership by creating an environment where each member feels connected, valued, and respected for their differences. The November 3 ARN DEI Listening Session will offer an opportunity for rehab nurses (regardless of their membership, CRRN, or conference registration status) to hear directly from leaders of ARN's DEI Task Force and share their own experience and questions.
In her October President's Message, ARN President Dr. Patricia Quigley reports on recently held ARN member town hall meetings and provides an update on ARN's membership engagement efforts, including summarizing results from ARN's recent member and CRRN engagement survey. Pat also outlines the path ahead for these efforts and how they will shape ARN for years to come.
ARN is committed to creating a safe and healthy environment for all 2021 Rehabilitation Nursing Conference attendees, exhibitors, vendors, staff, and community. It is in this spirit that ARN has elected to require masks as well as proof of vaccination for anyone who wishes to participate in the in-person components of the conference taking place November 9-12, 2021, in Providence, RI. A negative COVID-19 test will not be accepted in place of proof of vaccination to attend.
One of the most looked-forward-to aspects of ARN's annual conference is the opportunity to recognize and celebrate stand-out rehab nurses through award recognition. ARN represents thousands of rehab nurses. Nurses who work day-in and day-out to advance patient care and rehab nursing as a specialty. ARN's awards program has historically recognized nurses based on their role, including awards for advanced practice nurses, case managers, educators, nurse executives, nurse managers, and researchers.
