The California School Nurses Organization (CSNO) is a non-profit association that provides members with critical and relevant topics from industry experts to facilitate best practice in the profession of School Nursing in California. Welcome to the 66th Annual Statewide Educational Conference at the Fresno Double Tree Hotel and Conference center in Fresno 2/4-7/2016. The newly renovated facility is bright and welcoming with an open air atmosphere. It is located close to the airport and directly across from the convention center. We are delighted you are here. Central Valley Section Board members worked tirelessly to present a quality conference that addresses nearly every aspect of our school nursing practice.
Once again you have exemplary pre-conference experiences including a wilderness trip to Yosemite Valley, the place where John Muir said, “ Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.” Spend the day with your school nurse colleagues to take in nature’s beauty. Other pre-conference options include assessment, HIV/AIDS training, updating your specialized health care procedure skills, and Spanish for School Nurses.
It’s 5:00 somewhere!!!! On Thursday, help us kick off our Annual Conference with a reception with Conference Sponsors and Exhibitors. Please thank them for their ongoing support of CSNO. They are taking their valuable time to spend with us and without their support this professional learning experience would not be possible. CSNO has something for everyone, whether you are new to school nursing, a CSNO veteran or just becoming involved with the Organization for the first time.
We have amazing conference speakers who are experts on topics of critical importance to new and experienced school nurses alike. Our conference has many general and breakout sessions so you can arrange your schedule to best fit your school nurse practice needs. There are opportunities to learn about evidence based practice, hot topics and trends in school nursing, network with colleagues, take in technology and have a great time at our Denim and Diamonds event. We have many great prizes, products and people attending our conference. We look forward to seeing you there. Please save the date for the 2017 conference March 16-19, 2017 at the Monterey Hyatt.
