Sponsorship Opportunities

NPCNA welcomes company sponsorships during our annual conference. We can allow sponsors during the poster session, breakout sessions, and the coffee/snack breaks.  In the past, we have had sponsors ranging from $500 - $1000. This has been a great way to showcase and spread awareness of cardiac focused organizations. At this time, we are unable to endorse any pharmaceutical companies. We are open to the discussion of this opportunity and would love to hear from you! Please contact NPCNA.contact@gmail.com for more information.



Staying educated and up to date on best practices allow nurses to provide safer care and promote better patient outcomes. That’s why I am involved in NPCNA
