Why Should You Attend NTI?
• Earn up to 30 hours of continuing nursing education credit. • Learn evidence-based best practices, which you can apply to your own practice right away.
This was my ﬁrst NTI and it was great.
I was inspired to get my CCRN and ramp up my knowledge.
• Become inspired and informed by presentations from renowned speakers. • Build confidence to inﬂuence your work environment. • Renew your spirit and re-energize your professional pride. • Experience new technology at the world’s largest trade show for high acuity and critical care nurses. • Validate your expertise through specialty certification. • Treat yourself to Chicago’s rich array of activities.
What Does Your Organization Receive When You Attend NTI?

This is the 13th NTI I have attended and I’m still just as inspired as I was after my ﬁrst NTI. I’m returning home with lots of ideas to share — can’t wait to bring all that I’ve learned back to my unit.
