Event Overview
Welcome message:

Mark your calendar, invite your colleagues to join you, and register early for our Advanced Critical Care & Emergency Nursing Conference.  This exceptional educational event is returning in 2018 to the city that never sleeps, Las Vegas, to provide ICU and ED nurses with the latest updates and information in their fields.  ICU and ED nurses are continuously in need for more knowledge to provide the best possible care and outcomes to their challenging patient conditions.  We look forward to support achieving this goal by providing presentations from nationally-known experts, encouraging interaction between attendees, their colleagues and speakers, as well as offering problem-solving and in-depth case study discussions throughout the conference.


A morning preconference, Traditional, Invasive to Contemporary, Noninvasive Hemodynamic Monitoring, reviews how acquisition of valid data, waveform analysis, and appropriate interpretation of the data are imperative for optimal patient hemodynamic assessment.

An afternoon preconference, Pharmacology Updates: Toxic Ingestions, Deadly Bleeding, and the Opioid Epidemic, addresses the most recent evidence, and provide pearls and pitfalls for management of patients with toxic ingestions, anticoagulation-related bleeding, and opioids emergencies.

The keynote presentation, Impact of a Mass Casualty Event, will address how one of the hospitals closest to the Las Vegas mass shooting in 2017 coped and treated many victims of this tragedy.

General Sessions relevant to both ICU and ED staff discuss issues and challenges these clinicians faced daily in their units.

From a choice of 15 sessions, attendees can participate in 5 Concurrent Sessions presenting specialty-specific options as well as broad-based sessions that apply to caring for all critically ill patients.

The exciting city of Las Vegas and its wide variety of restaurants, entertainment, and shopping.
