The Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates (SUNA) is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses’ Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
The SUNA accreditation is reciprocal in the states and specialty organizations that recognize the ANCC-COA accreditation process. SUNA is also a provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP 5556. Accreditation and approved provider status of CE in nursing does not imply ANCC-COA approval or endorsement of any product, advertising, or educational content. SUNA urges all participants to be aware of the CE requirements for re-licensure in the states in which they hold a license.
At least 3 hours of pharmacology credit will be awarded. Total number of approved credits is yet to be determined. Additional pharmacology credit for the preconference workshops has not yet been approved. NOTE: indicates requested pharmacology credit.
Call for Session Moderators
Your help is needed to assist with speaker support during the educational sessions. If you’ve been looking for an opportunity as a SUNA member to get involved in the organization, this is a great occasion for meeting other members and welcoming colleagues to the conference. As a session moderator, you will introduce the speaker from the podium, handle A/V equipment for the speaker, and keep the session on time. There will be an orientation session for all moderators on Thursday, October 25 from 5:00 pm – 5:30 pm. To volunteer, mark your conference registration form or contact the SUNA National Office at 1-888-TAP-SUNA.
Guest badges are available as a courtesy for paid attendees. A “guest” is defined as a spouse, family member, significant other, friend, or adult child (over 16 years old). A co-worker or an associate within the industry does not qualify as a guest. The fee is $50, which entitles the guest to visit the Exhibit Hall only. Guest fee does not include admission to sessions, meal functions or corporate sponsored symposia.
SUNA occasionally uses photographs of SUNA convention participants in its newsletter, Web site, promotional materials, and in the Urologic Nursing Journal. By virtue of your attendance at the uroLogic Conference, you agree to usage of your likeness in such material.
Although we try to obtain sponsorship for the meals listed as “pending” in this brochure, it is not always possible. We regret that if sponsorship is not received, those meals will be on your own.
Corporate Sponsored Sessions
Some states have enacted strict compliance and disclosure requirements for pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and healthcare professionals. If your state does NOT permit sponsors to provide meals during educational sessions, you may attend the session, but you will not be permitted to partake of the meal.
