What CRNAs say about NAFA
This was definitely one of the best conferences I've attended in recent years. Helpful engaging staff, fresh topics, and pleasant accommodations all added to an overall great seminar.
The speakers are interesting, up to date, innovators In their fields. The setting is gorgeous. I have been to this meeting for several years it is always excellent.
I have relied on on-the-job training for ultrasound techniques, but this hands-on course has allowed me to correct my errors, turn my flaws into success, and hopefully gain more confidence and improve my technique.
A great meeting to learn newest technology, evidence and best practices supporting safest quality patient care we can offer. And the sun is always waiting for you after the meeting for your enjoyment.
