Virtual Access Registration

Can’t make it to the in-person conference? For those who are unable to attend the event in-person in Philadelphia, ANCC has created a virtual platform with access to a limited number of concessions and posters sessions. There are 20 pre-selected concurrent sessions and eight poster groups (85 poster sessions) for viewing. The concurrent and poster sessions are the same ones found at the in-person event, so you may only claim CNE one time for a particular session whether you attended in-person or via virtual access. A total of up to 28 CNE credits can be earned.

You may register for the Virtual Access only. All in-person attendees will automatically have access to the virtual access platform until December 2 and DO NOT need to register for both.


Register today for Virtual Access only if you are not able to attend the conference in-person.





ANA member ID is required.





Concurrent Sessions

Eight time blocks with 120 concurrent educational sessions to choose from (choose from several sessions within a time block. Only 20 of all the sessions will be offered in the virtual component, it is advised not to select any of those 20, so that you may earn CNE from those when viewing on demand.)

20 pre-selected concurrent educational sessions out of the total 120 sessions available to in-person attendees.


16 posters groups with 177 posters to view.

Eight of the 16 poster groups with 85 posters of the 177 to view. For those attending in-person, viewed posters cannot be claimed twice. The 85 chosen posters are selected from those posters at the conference.

Total CNE Credit Hours Offered

24 CNE credit hours from the 8 concurrent sessions selected and 20 CNE from posters viewed (20 CNE can be earned from virtual concurrent sessions as long as they are not the same sessions attended in-person and none can be earned by posters) for a total up to 44 CNEs

Up to 28 CNE credit hours.
