A special after-hours networking event will be held at Atomic Golf on Day 1 to facilitate camaraderie and stress relief.

Finally, join forensic nursing mentors for the Non-Fatal Strangulation Clinical Competency Validation Simulation​, where you'll get hands-on experience and validate your skills in performing a strangulation examination using ALS, photo, and narrative documentation methodologies. Participants will work as a team of four nurses. This session is limited to 48 participants.
