Update: May 22, 2020

In March it was decided that, due to COVID-19, the ANCC Pathway to Excellence Conference® would be postponed and be co-located with the ANCC National Magnet Conference® in October.

When we announced this, we stated we would continue to assess the unfolding developments regarding coronavirus. Our priority remains the health and safety of all the world’s people, and our life’s work is to support the nurses and health care workers who are on the front lines during this pandemic. With these thoughts in mind, we are announcing the conference plan. Click here for a Frequently Asked Questions Document (FAQ).

The Plan:

Specific programing and registration information will be updated by the end of this year.

If you have already registered for the Pathway Conference, your registration will automatically transfer. If you are unable to attend the April 2021 event, email pathway@mcievents.com to cancel your registration. *Please note, if you are registered with a group, your group contact must reach out to cancel your registration.

We are glad to be able to combine these three incredible conferences and unite the global nursing community for learning and celebration. Nurses are more important than ever right now. The Pathway to Excellence Conference and ANCC National Magnet Conference are opportunities to honor and thank nurses on the front lines.

PLEASE NOTE – If you made travel or hotel reservations for the West Palm Beach event, please read the following carefully:

ANCC will continue to assess unfolding developments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).
