Additional Information for ISPT


The Gerontological Advance Practice Nurses Association (GAPNA) invites you to attend an Industry Supported Presentation Theater (ISPT) the 2017 conference in Nashville, TN. The programs were independently produced, not subject to review by GAPNA, and are not part of the scientific/educational program offered by GAPNA.

What is an ISPT?
An ISPT is a dedicated time for Industry to host a session that provides information on a specific product or service of interest to NPs working in the area of gerontology. Since these sessions may be promotional and are specific to a certain product, no CNEs are available for these sessions.

The ISPT will allow you the opportunity to highlight your product or service to APNs in a relaxed atmosphere while focusing only on your product and the APNs in attendance. ISPT sessions do not compete with any other educational programming in the time period allotted.

* Seating is limited - attendees will be admitted on a first-come basis.
