While Advance Practice nurses change health behaviors one patient at a time, the goal of the Wyoming Council of Advanced Practice Nursing is to encourage awareness of the thousands of people in our profession. We will do this by growing our communications, membership, and reach both inside and outside of the state of Wyoming.
To continue our recent momentum, we are rebranding WCAPN with an updated logo for use on our website, social media, and other association materials. More than just an updated logo, this is our commitment to growing the association. With our ever-changing profession, it is more important than ever that WCAPN continues to serve as the state’s leader for APRNs.
Another change in WCAPN is the renaming of our annual fall conference. For the past, several years the annual conference has been titled WCAPN Pharmacotherapy Conference. In reviewing conference feedback and requests from membership, we felt it was in the best interest of the association, but more importantly for Wyoming APRNS, to provide an educational conference designed to support the professional practice and learning needs of all nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists and advanced practice nurses by providing a variety of evidence-based educational topics. While pharmacotherapy will still be a content focus, we will also be broadening the content to focus on the clinical topics, innovative practice settings and other topics related to advanced practice nursing. Thus, our annual conference will be the Advanced Practice Forum.The inaugural, Advanced Practice Forum, will be held, October 13-14, 2017 at the Ramkota in Casper.
