2021 Annual Meeting Attendee Information

Information for 2021 ITNS Virtual Annual Meeting attendees:

You will have access to the meeting content until March 1, 2022

Continuing Education Information: 

The 2021 International Transplant Nurses Society Annual Meeting will offer continuing education (CE) credit for nurses. Credit will be awarded for those sessions attended and evaluated. Successful completion requires that participants register for the meeting, attend and participate, and complete an online evaluation. Participants will receive their CNE certificates immediately after they submit their evaluations online.

As the ITNS Annual Meeting will be in a hybrid format this year, those attending the live event will be able to earn additional CE via the online platform once all session recordings have been added to the platform. All attendees, virtual and live, will have the opportunity to earn up to 35.5 hours of credit, plus an additional 8 hours if attending all pre-conference events.
