    COVID-19 Precautions

    The American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) staff and resort officials continue to take precautions to ensure the health and well-being of attendees. Current 2021 AANP Fall Conference COVID-19 precautions include the following:

    • Registration has been limited to allow attendees space for social distancing.
    • Staff members will be located at each registration kiosk to confirm COVID-19 vaccination and no symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days of conference. They will input your registration information for you in order to minimize surface contact with the kiosk.
    • Properly worn masks will be strictly required throughout the conference venue, except when eating and drinking. AANP will provide masks to all attendees and will have extra available if needed.
    • As an added safety precaution for attendees and speakers, AANP will be asking that attendees not approach the podium or gather in groups to meet with speakers after each session. Instead, attendees will be able to ask questions using the audience microphones or by contacting the speaker using the email address provided at the end of the slide deck.
    • Employees of the hotel are provided masks and are required to wear them properly at all times.
    • Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the hotel and in the meeting areas.
    • The Diplomat Beach Resort has developed a special cleaning program to deliver the safest stay possible. Learn more about the Hilton CleanStay program.
    • AANP will enforce all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and local government regulations in place at the time of the event.

    Please note that all attendees will be asked to attest to being fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before being admitted to the in-person conference venue. If you are not fully vaccinated, please contact AANP conference staff at conference@aanp.org to change your registration to the online conference.

    The situation remains fluid, therefore all conference details, including sessions, speakers, rooms and COVID-19 precautions, are subject to change. Visit this page or the AANP Mobile App for the most current updates and to review the full list of precautions in place to ensure all attendees have a safe and enriching experience.

    Topical Areas

    Six topical areas will be presented at the 2021 AANP Fall Conference. Within each topical area, registered attendees can choose from a number of sessions on a variety of therapeutic areas — or select sessions from multiple topical areas to create your personalized conference experience!

    Please note: The Leadership topical area is the only track that must be taken in its entirety. Selecting one session from the Leadership topical area will automatically register you for all 12 sessions.

    Business and Professional

    Have you ever considered working beyond the bedside in nursing? As an NP, the options are endless. Nurse entrepreneurs own and manage their own practices. Clinical nurse educators develop grants to fund new educational experiences, such as NP residency programs. Nurse consultants contract their services to organizations in need of short-term clinical work. NPs are uniquely positioned to serve as expert legal consultants in matters related to nursing standards of care, organizational policies and procedures and scope of practice. The sessions in this topical area will focus on the exciting career opportunities available to NPs, which are limited only by your imagination.

    Cardiometabolic

    Cardiometabolic syndrome (CMS) is a widely recognized syndrome inclusive of a combination of metabolic dysfunctions, such as insulin resistance, diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension and obesity. These states have been identified as risk factors for the development of atherosclerotic disease. This series of sessions will explore the spectrum of factors — including environments, diets, lifestyles, genetic and epigenetic factors — that may combine to cause any one of the cardiometabolic diseases. Sessions in this topical area examine current evidence, treatment modalities across the spectrum and new developments in identifying CMS, as well as the intersections between the nuances of cardiometabolic illnesses and wellness.

    Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

    AANP is committed to empowering all NPs to advance high-quality, equitable health care while addressing health disparities, inequities and systemic racism through practice, education, advocacy, research and leadership. The goal of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion topical area is to provide a professional development forum for NPs, across multiple practice settings, to 1) explore the social determinants of health and the broader structural determinants that impact health, health care delivery and health outcomes; 2) engage in conversations about race, racism, bias and discrimination; and 3) identify strategies for promoting diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces. Through critical dialogue and knowledge exchange, participants will have the opportunity to assess, evaluate and reflect on their current practice while exploring transformative shifts to advance diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, social justice and health equity.

    Leadership

    NPs are well-positioned as leaders in the health care field, and leadership training is crucial to increase effectiveness and to drive positive change in the way health care is delivered. These sessions will focus on a wide array of topics that will deepen the NP’s emotional intelligence, creativity, capacity for communication, transformational leadership skills, understanding of systems and ability to support and motivate others. At the end of the conference, attendees will receive a certificate of completion from The George Washington University (GWU) School of Nursing, which is a requirement for the AANP Executive Leadership Program.

    Note: If you register for one Leadership session, you will be automatically registered for all 12 sessions in this topical area. Attendees are required to complete all 12 sessions within this topical area; selecting just one session or a few sessions without completing all 12 is not permitted.

    Pharmacology

    The Pharmacology topical area emphasizes advanced concepts in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics, with specific attention to their clinical implications. Individual sessions are designed to present the latest advances among a wide variety of contemporary clinical topics of relevance for NPs from all practice settings. Building upon the evidence-based foundation of early practice, these sessions include a higher-level analysis and application of clinical and diagnostic indicators as a foundation for managing complex patients or those who do not otherwise respond to classic, evidence-based drug regimens.

    Psychiatric-Mental Health

    Patients often view the primary care setting as more acceptable or accessible for mental health care than a specialty setting. Therefore, primary care NPs are on the front lines for the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. Research trials consistently demonstrate the effectiveness of integrated care for mental disorders; yet, primary care providers and systems are overburdened, and clinicians sometimes lack knowledge and confidence to practice to the full scope of their NP roles. This topical area provides information to improve the delivery of mental health services in primary care; likewise, it enhances and extends the skill set for the competent mental health provider.

  • Visiting Hollywood, Florida

    Welcome to Florida's Hollywood!

    Hollywood is a classic Florida beach town — located between Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Miami — that has enchanted visitors since the 1920s. Not only can you enjoy the sand, sun and ocean breeze of the award-winning Hollywood Beach, but you can also stroll along the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, an oceanfront promenade that stretches nearly two and a half miles along the Atlantic Ocean. Just minutes from the beach is historic Downtown Hollywood, where you can dine at quaint sidewalk cafés, shop at one-of-a-kind boutiques, find unique items at art galleries or even stumble upon festivals, street markets, music and entertainment. Make sure to snap a picture if you find one of the more than 20 contemporary, outdoor murals throughout the downtown area.

    As the site for the 2021 AANP Fall Conference, the Diplomat Beach Resort gives you the perfect location to reunite with your NP colleagues, earn CE credit and catch some rays. Voted one of the top 10 meeting hotels in the U.S. by Cvent, the Diplomat Beach Resort is the ideal South Florida location for beachfront conferences!

    • Registration has been limited to allow attendees space for social distancing.
    • Staff members will be located at each registration kiosk to confirm COVID-19 vaccination and no symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days of conference. They will input your registration information for you in order to minimize surface contact with the kiosk.
    • Properly worn masks will be strictly required throughout the conference venue, except when eating and drinking. AANP will provide masks to all attendees and will have extra available if needed.
    • As an added safety precaution for attendees and speakers, AANP will be asking that attendees not approach the podium or gather in groups to meet with speakers after each session. Instead, attendees will be able to ask questions using the audience microphones or by contacting the speaker using the email address provided at the end of the slide deck.
    • Employees of the hotel are provided masks and are required to wear them properly at all times.
    • Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the hotel and in the meeting areas.
    • The Diplomat Beach Resort has developed a special cleaning program to deliver the safest stay possible. Learn more about the Hilton CleanStay program.

If you are not fully vaccinated, please contact AANP conference staff at conference@aanp.org to change your registration to the online conference.
