To book a hotel room at a discounted rate, mention INPS when you call the Sheraton West Des Moines.

We will be offering the opportunity for conference attendees to show your posters. All we require is that the poster be related to advance nursing practice. Bring your poster with you to the conference. INPS will provide the stands. Please email a copy of your poster to Anne Gentil-Archer so we have an idea of how many stands we need. The posters will be presented in the main room. We ask that you be present to discuss your poster during lunch breaks on Thursday and Friday. Thank you and we look forward to seeing your hard work!

Welcome to the 2018 INPS <mostly> Pharmacological Conference!

I’d like to personally welcome each of you to the 2018 Iowa Nurse Practitioner Society's 'Mostly' Pharmacology Conference. It’s an exciting time for INPS as we continue to grow and respond to the needs of our members. Health care is confronting a time of many changes and we’re hoping to help you meet those changes by offering relevant and meaningful presentations.

I’d like to give you an idea of what you can expect and what we hope to achieve during the conference.

  • We've added a half day on Wednesday dedicated to pediatrics. We're hoping our Family and Pediatric NPs will enjoy dedicated time to their area of expertise. This half-day is provided FREE if you register for our standard two-day conference. We have not increased registration prices, we're just adding more content!
  • We've heard your feedback from last year and have implemented some logistical changes. We've done things like shortened the morning breaks, included different types of tables (the round ones always seem to give a few people bad seats!), and we are ending the conference early on Friday to give you a chance to miss some traffic on your way home!
  • Our most exciting addition to this year's conference is our new FREE Conference App. Nearly everything can be done by using this app. You can access the agenda, read the bios of the speakers, connect with each other, add job information and so much more! You can download the free App by searching "Whova" in any of the App stores. All paid registrants will receive access instructions in the weeks leading up to the conference. You may download Whova anytime.
  • We are offering a discount of 25% off to those aged 65 and older. If the registration is paid online, the discount will be applied as a refund. If the registration is paid via check, please apply the 25% discount accordingly and mail in the discounted amount. For example, a $300 registration would cost $225. For questions and to receive the 25% refund on a registration paid online, please contact admin@iowanpsociety.org.

Before I close, I’d like to thank each of your for attending our conference and bringing your expertise to our gathering.  Throughout this conference, I ask you to stay engaged and keep us informed of everything you like (and don't like!) by providing us feedback as you complete the conference evaluation. Help us shape the future INPS conferences. My personal respect and thanks goes out to all of you.
