About the Event

54. That's the number of recommendations the Future of Nursing Report 2020-2030 published. But how will nurses take on these recommendations to advance health equity in California? 

This year, our annual conference focuses on actions nurses can take to improve health equity in their institutions, their communities, and within their profession. Here is what you can expect to hear from health equity experts and speakers on topics such as:

  • Simulation's impact on health equity
  • Nurse-led, community-based care models
  • Insight on ANA\C's Racism in Nursing Assessment
  • Other nursing associations' health equity initiatives
  • Review of ANA\C's Future of Nursing Report Progress
