FHCA 2021 Nurse Leadership Program, Better Together

Nurse Leadership Program Registration is SOLD OUT. 

Registration is closed for the 2021 Nurse Leadership Program (NLP), as the event is at full capacity. The FHCA Nurse Leadership Program Safety Plan is in accordance with the CDC Guidelines relating to large gatherings. FHCA has planned for a 6 ft. distance between seats for all education sessions. As CDC Guidelines change so will the Safety Plan. If CDC guidelines permit us to seat attendees at a closer distance, which would allow more attendees in the education rooms, the Nurse Leadership Program registration will reopen and allow for additional individuals to sign up. 

Please click here to be placed on the Nurse Leadership Program waiting list should registration reopen. Participants will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

About

FHCA’s 2021 Nurse Leadership Program is Florida’s leading clinical conference for long term care professionals. We are excited to announce that this year’s program will be an in-person event that will follow a number of safety and sanitation measures to ensure the wellbeing of our participants. As always, the Nurse Leadership Program agenda will support the evolving skills required in long term care nursing and enhance individual leadership development. Presentations will focus on clinical reimbursement, caregiver stress and trauma, workforce development, COVID-19 defense relating to liability claims and regulatory updates from the Agency for Health Care Administration. All full registrants will also receive a complimentary copy of the Medical Errors: Prevention & Analysis 2-Hour Self-Study Course, which is a requirement for administrator and nurse licensure renewal.

NLP Safety Plan: Click here to review FHCA’s Nurse Leadership Program Safety Plan, which emphasizes our goal of creating an atmosphere in which all meeting attendees, speakers and exhibitors will feel safe. All education breakout rooms will be designed with distanced seating, the Tabletop Expo will be split up between two days for all tabletop displays to spread out and ensure there will be no overcrowding and break areas located outside when possible. We have asked all speakers to rotate rooms instead of attendees to prevent large gatherings in the pre-function space. Sessions will be recorded and posted on our virtual platform following the Program so that paid attendees may view sessions in which they were unable to attend.
