ARN REACH 2018 was the Meeting for Rehabilitation Nurses

ARN’s annual conference provides a forum for attendees to learn and discuss basic knowledge and skills, recent developments in research and science, best practices, and evidence-based recommendations. The content is driven largely by clinical gaps and the associated educational needs as determined by the Program Planning Committee. All of this information is aimed at representing state-of-the-art advances in rehabilitation care, management, and research. Attendees also are provided updates to advocacy and certification, offered multiple opportunities to network with faculty and participants, and given several occasions to interact with product vendors.

In October 2018, nurses from all over the nation gathered in West Palm Beach, FL, for the year's premier educational event for rehabilitation nurses to

  • brush up on CRRN principles with the Live CRRN Review Course
  • attend Preconference Sessions to learn How to Manage Behaviors After TBI, and FIM: Expertise & Collaboration
