The AHNA Annual Conference offers six days of top-notch continuing education workshops, industry-leading keynote speakers, networking with fellow holistic nurses, an exhibit hall filled with vendors offering the latest products and services to complement your daily practice, and time to nurture yourself and your connection to holism in an environment primed with energy and support of fellow healers.
