2022 Health Policy Conference - From Reflection to Impact: Positioning Nursing's Future


The theme for the 2022 Health Policy Conference is From Reflection to Impact: Positioning Nursing's Future. The 2022 Health Policy Conference will convene thought leadership within nursing and health care to reflect on the profession’s challenges, triumphs, and opportunities to shape policies for future, long-term impact. Participants will engage with leaders who will share how recent events have ignited nursing innovation, research, and practice, and how multi-level policies influence health and health care.

The Academy’s Health Policy Conference will be held in person at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC from October 27-29, 2022 and there will not be a virtual registration option this year. Asynchronous, on-demand content will be available after the event for purchase.

The Academy will take additional measures to protect the health and safety of the participants at the Health Policy Conference. Specifically, we will require all registered attendees and speakers to be fully vaccinated, as outlined by the CDC, to participate in-person at the conference. For individuals who are unable to be vaccinated due to medical or religious reasons, proof of a negative test within 24 hours prior to arriving on-site at the event will be required. In-person attendees will be required to upload their vaccination card or negative test through a secure portal. Additionally, attendees will be required to execute a liability waiver related to potential exposure.

The Academy continues to monitor and adjust our health and safety measures as the course of the pandemic unfolds. The Academy requests that all attendees and guests are familiar with and agree to uphold the public safety measures laid out by the District of Columbia’s Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on masking, social distancing, travel, international travel, and testing. While masks are not currently required in DC, the Academy does strongly encourage participants to wear them indoors. Please note that in-person attendees who are traveling internationally to the United States for the event must refer to and adhere to their own country’s guidance on COVID-19 protocols in relation to U.S. based travel and entry and will be required to show their proof of vaccination card onsite at the conference upon check-in at registration in order to participate in the conference since the CLEAR Health Pass does not have the ability to verify international vaccine cards.
