APRN conference, a success!

Seventy-five advanced practice registered nurses networked at the APRN Pharmacology Conference in Helena on March 13th and 14th, 2015! When asked how they planned to use this learning activity to strengthen their practice the replies varied and were as follows:

"I will use the guidelines presented for updating Hepatitis C and B, the concussion assessment and the opioid use in my present practice."


"The prescription drug registry information will be further implemented."

"I found the Detox information had a better description of addiction issues and plan to utilize the Prescription Drug Registry in my practice immediately."

"I will use the End of Life strategies to work with my patients in need."

"This conference reinforced treatment plans and implementation of new ideas."

"I want to learn more on wound practices at our clinic and will check PDR for my scripts to patients monthly."

"I have a better understanding of HIV and Hepatitis C and family planning patients and their treatments."


"I plan to make changes based on new updates and pass on this information to other providers in the clinic."

"I have an improved plan of care for concussion screening and improve my diabetic care."

When the participants were asked which gaps in knowledge were closed, these were their replies:

"Good information on how to describe the brain to a child and his parents."

"I have a better understanding of the new Diabetes Mellitus medications."

"I will become more vigilant in narcotic prescribing and use the drug registry more." "Really increased my knowledge concerning concussions."

"My assessment skills were really enhanced."

"Helped update my diabetic knowledge and wound evaluation!"

And last but not least, MNA's favorite comment was:

"Excellent conference! Always enjoy this conference! Very knowledgeable speakers! The quality gets better each year!"

Mark your calendars for next year, March 4 & 5, 2016.
