The program offers three full days of learning opportunities that include a wide range of topics related to clinical practice, professional development and trends in healthcare.

- Note the number of minutes that RX will be discussed on each objective.
- Note the number of minutes that a Board of Nursing Requirement will be discussed on each objective (ie J=Jurisprudence, E=Ethics, CS=Controlled Substance and G=Geriatrics)
