Attend Our Convention

Simply by participating in the convention each year, you are able to obtain all of your required annual RN continuing education hours! PADONA, as an approved provider, offers 20.5 contact hours for nurses who attend all offered programs and complete an evaluation form. This year our virtual convention has combined both the clinical and administrative educational tracks for participants. The official convention kick‐off begins at 8:30 AM on Tuesday, August 18th and ends on Friday, August 21st at 12:00 PM.

We regret that the annual convention, that we all look forward to each year at the Hotel Hershey, was required to be canceled secondary to the Public Health Emergency of the coronavirus pandemic. We missed you! During these unprecedented times we have all been required to make changes and do things differently than our “normal”. But we don’t want you to miss the opportunity to learn from our excellent and valued presenters. The convention schedule, registration form, and credit card authorization are attached.

A few important items for this year’s rescheduled virtual webinar convention:

  1. The two separate tracks for administrative and clinical have been combined into one track. You can hear all presenters delivering all sessions with registration for the full convention. This includes the two pre-convention sessions that had been scheduled for the Tuesday evening.
  2. Full convention registration and attendance will result in 20.5 nursing contact hours and 20.5 nursing home administrator participant hours.
  3. The webinar sessions are the same duration as the in-person convention were scheduled for with 30-minute breaks between each session and 60-minute lunch breaks to allow you to manage work between sessions.
  4. The virtual webinar convention allows you to attend from the comfort of your office or home without travel and you can allow others to attend the learning sessions as well – but only the paid registrant who has signed in for the session will receive the contact and/or participant hours.
  5. The convention is a full three days of education except for Friday which is a half day.
  6. Registration for convention can be for either the full 3.5 days or per day registration.
  7. Upon registration and payment, you will receive an email confirmation with instructions related to convention links.

Reduced convention registration fee includes:

  • All educational programs
  • Total of 20.5 continuing education hours
  • Handout reference materials
  • Covers both clinical & administrative tracks
