Amp Up Your Skills with a New Playlist 

The 2022 AHCA/NCAL Professional Development Workgroup designed an education program that addresses current and pressing operating and care challenges facing providers today. Critical workforce issues, census rebuilding, reimbursement constraints, regulatory changes and much more set the stage for exceptional performances from the best talent in the industry. It is imperative that providers come to Nashville and learn from experts and peers about the impact of these issues in our sector.

The comprehensive agenda covers all the topics you need to be successful in your community or organization. With an increased focus on workforce challenges, the program offers practical, implementable, real-world solutions to the challenges you face every day. 

Carve out the best value by registering for the Premium Package. Included in the Premium Package is a welcome reception, two general sessions, two-day Expo Hall access with lunch, your choice of education sessions beginning with the Sunday Intensives, and, running through Wednesday afternoon, the Quality Award Ceremony, and networking events. The Premium Package provides post-convention access to recorded sessions as well as the opportunity for additional CEs. It also allows for the sharing of materials with your staff. 

Note that the following convention education programs require a separate ticket to be added to your registration: 
• NCAL Day
• Rehabilitation Therapy Program (Hosted By AHCA and NASL) 

Enhance Your Playlist with CE Credits
