Pre-Conference Sessions:
Sunday, Sept 9th

Newbie BootCamp
10:00am - 5:00pm

For those attendees who have yet to start their first assignment or are still very new to it (less than a year), we recommend Newbie BootCamp on Sunday which provides the fundamentals for those new to this unique career.  Whether you have been working in your position for 5 or 25 years, healthcare travelers have an additional set of challenges unrelated to their clinical skills. Newbie BootCamp sessions provide the basic understanding of traveling as a healthcare professional – what it takes, what’s involved and how to get started. This information is not repeated during the main conference – it provides the framework of information necessary to fully understand the main conference sessions.

CEN Review
9:00am - 6:15pm

Jeff Solheim, MSN, RN-BC, CEN, CFRN, FAEN

A hallmark of professionalism is board certification. Emergency nurses wanting to be board certified in their specialty must successfully pass the Certified Emergency Nurse (CEN) exam. This one-day abbreviated review course provides learners with over 100 practice questions that allows the participant to learn how to read questions, to assess their readiness for the exam and to learn theory and material that will be useful in preparation for the CEN exam. Make your resume stand out with your CEN!

Medical Spanish Intensive
10:00am - 5:00pm

Tracey Long RN, PhD, MS, MSN, CDE, CNE, CHUC, COI, CCRN

Health care professionals who can speak conversational and basic Spanish phrases to Spanish–speaking patients can improve patient satisfaction, decrease communication errors and potentially avoid medical errors. Learn the basics you've always wanted to know to get you through your shifts. This is a 6 hour intensive that gives you lots of time to practice so you can walk out ready to 'Habla'!
