President's Message

With the biannual publication of the NPCNA newsletter, typically in the spring and fall, the message below from the NPCNA President will be updated. So check back early and often for updated news from our president.

Knowledge and networking: Pediatric Cardiology Nursing Symposium is the title of our 2016 NPCNA conference in Boston, Massachusetts. The title is specific to the goals of NPCNA. We are a group of nurses and nurse practitioners, ranging from novice to expert in the field pediatric cardiology. Between our annual conference and biannual newsletter, we are able to share evidence-based practice, nurse-driven initiatives, best practices, research, clinical innovations and current cardiac challenges. Our meetings, website and message boards allow our members to network with  other cardiac nurses. The annual conference is an opportunity for first time speakers, as well as expert speakers, to share their work. We are a supportive group that encourages the growth of the pediatric cardiology nursing field.
