I'm a new nurse, graduated in May 2009, unemployed, no prospects, depressed as all heck about the non-employment situation, interested in pain management. I'm thinking about going to the annual conference; I got an email reminder this morning.
Even though I have no nursing working experience, I generally operate on the theory that all education is good education. I'm sure I'd find the sessions interesting. I'm pretty shy so I find attendance at events such as this to be fairly stressful on a social level. I now have a continuing education section on my resume and I would certainly add attendance at the conference to my resume. Would this help to make me an interesting employee candidate?
Anyway, I just wondered if any Allnurses members were planning on going, and if so, perhaps we could connect there.
