Rocky Mountain Retreat

Nurse Practitioner Wellness: A Rocky Mountain Self-Care Retreat to Rejoin, Rejoice and Rejuvenate
July 6-7, 2021
Keystone Ranch & Keystone Conference Center Keystone, Colorado

Accreditation

9.5 CE hours will be awarded to those that attend the entire retreat (partial credit is not available) and complete the required evaluations. Certificates of completion will be offered through Joint Accreditation (ACCME, ACPE, ANCC) and AANP, with acceptance of pertinent content by AAPA, ACNM and NAPNAP

COVID-19 has placed unique demands on Nurse Practitioners who often give to others while their own needs go unmet.  This retreat is designed for the over-deployed NP who may feel their life is not their own.  It will instill rejuvenation in your work, your relationships, and your continuing self-development. 

  • Do you have no space in your life to do the things that you genuinely want to be doing?
  • Are you looking for ways to confront a lifestyle or work that is far too stressful?
  • Do you have a hard time saying NO without feeling guilty?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this retreat is for you!

This day and a half retreat that will teach you to:

  • Discover the science of human well-being and apply it to YOUR life
  • Gather motivation and set goals to make changes that serve YOU
  • Use your core strengths in new ways
  • Interrupt the patterns that add stress to your life
  • Set boundaries and create your own personal policies
  • Discover how to grow wise versus just growing old
    …..and much more!

You, your loved ones and your patients are best served when you place your own wellbeing as a pre-requisite for healthy relationships and your own effectiveness.  This retreat will help you reflect, regroup, and rejuvenate so that you can take charge to create the kind of life and work you deserve. 

The purpose of the retreat is to singularly focus on your personal and professional growth in caring for the self, which will allow each attendee to build a plan that reflects their most important values. Each person will leave with a sense of duty to make their own health, wellness and wholeness, not only possible, but a priority.

The Bridge: A Comprehensive Headache Education Program

About

Attend a seminar featuring didactic presentations and a choice of one of two workgroups.

Current pathophysiologic models will be addressed. Hear acute and preventive treatment strategies for adult and pediatric populations along with appropriate patient selection, administration (timing and route), and potential medication misuse and/or overuse concerns. Learn how to address comorbid medical complaints in appropriate medication selection and monitoring.

The American Headache Society® (AHS) Nurse Practitioner / Physician Assistant (NP/PA) Special Interest Group developed this educational offering for Primary Care Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. This comprehensive overview of migraine is delivered by Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant members of AHS.. 

Accreditation
