Join us this October 4th-5th in Washington, DC for "Pediatric Cardiac Nursing: At the Heart of It All", our 35th Annual Conference! 

NPCNA has been an integral part of my professional career since 2007. It is a community of nurses specializing in pediatric cardiology that promotes professional development and education.  We offer a seasonal newsletter to our membership as well as an annual conference. Our conference continues to highlight strong quality improvement work and provide evidence-based education in our continuously changing field of work. I am so honored to serve as president of this association and look forward to seeing you at the conference this fall.
