CNHE Conference Abstract Deadline Extended

Deadline June 21, 2010

The CNHE Executive is proud to announce its FIRST national conference, to be held in conjunction with the Aboriginal Nurses Association of Canada, the Canadian Men in Nursing Group, and the Diabetes Nursing Interest Group of the RNAO. The conference is set for October 25-27, 2010 at the Hilton Toronto Airport Hotel & Suites in Toronto, ON.

This year is special in many ways, as A.N.A.C. is proudly celebrating its 35th anniversary and 2010 is also the International Year of the Nurse. The CNHE Executive can think of no better way to showcase the dedication and contributions of Canadian nurses than collaborating with our diverse partners to make this conference a success!
