Open to members only, the newly re-imagined ACNS Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are organized around several main areas of CNP practice providing members the opportunity to connect, network, and participate in interactive education throughout the year.
Each SIG will host two virtual meet-ups annually and will have a dedicated discussion board on ACNS Connect to continue the conversation between sessions.
The virtual meet-ups offer a variety of activities, including case-based discussions, journal clubs, broad literature resources, and director-led interactive studies. In advance, links to join the virtual sessions will be posted to each SIG's ACNS Connect community. Sessions will be recorded, and links to the recordings will be posted to the corresponding ACNS Connect community, available for two weeks.
6:30 - 8:30 pm ET unless otherwise noted
