MoANA Spring Meeting

April 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - April 24, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

YOU ASKED AND WE LISTENED! This year, we moved the Spring Conference to Missouri State University’s Campus and expanded our CE offerings to include 8 hours of hands-on sessions.

MSU’s brand new, state-of-the-art classrooms will allow:

  • human patient simulation
  • a cadaver lab
  • ultrasound scanning with live models
  • difficult airway with fiberoptic intubation
  • invasive airway management  ……  and much more!

Hotel Reservations:  Available at the NEW Holiday Inn and Suites only blocks from campus.  A block of rooms will be available for a special rate of $94.00/night until Monday, March 21st.  Please call (417) 862-0070 to reserve your room and state that you are with the Missouri Association of Nurse Anesthetists’ Spring Meeting.

Cancellation Policy:  A full refund will be given if written notification is received at least three business days prior to the scheduled meeting. From that date until seven business days following the meeting, a 50% refund will be given upon written request.  After the seven-day period, no refunds will be given.  Registration fees cannot be credited toward future meetings.
