Table of Contents

Should You Attend Nursing Conferences 2023?

The answer is an unequivocal yes! Yes, you should attend a nurse conference in 2023 as time and money allow. And because we know your next question without you asking, we'll tell you why. Networking as a nurse can open doors to opportunities and relationships you might never have imagined, and the benefits go beyond job opportunities.

What are the Benefits of Connecting and Networking at Nursing Conferences?

Nurse conferences are excellent opportunities for nurses to experience, on a broader level, a sense of community and unity. Conferences bring clinicians from all walks of life, different geographic locations and settings, urban and rural, and varied educational backgrounds. They can help you step outside the challenges you face, talk to others in other settings dealing with something similar and share ideas and experiences. 

Moreover, conferences bring forth new evidence-based practices and technologies, helping you stay current, earn continuing education hours, and provide a sense of hope and anticipation for the future in nursing, which sometimes gets bogged down in the day-to-day details.

We hope you share anticipation, camaraderie, knowledge, fun, socialization, and hope. But don't just take our word for it. Check one out and experience it for yourself. What value do you gain by attending one conference? 

What nursing conferences held in 2023 should you consider attending? There are many to choose from, and the research can be overwhelming. Therefore, we've compiled a list of nursing conferences across the country. We hope you find one that piques your interest and is reasonable for you to attend.
