The health and well-being of our members and your patients are always our utmost concern. For that reason, in light of the COVID-19 situation, TNP has decided to cancel the in-person Entry into Practice Conference at the Embassy Suites in San Marcos on May 29, 2020.
However, the event will commence as scheduled online via our new CE Center, and will be accompanied by a live chat Q&A with the speakers. TNP has been working as quickly as possible to ensure we can provide this content and accreditation virtually. 
We appreciate your patience as we work to provide the same content on the virtual event as originally planned at the Entry into Practice Conference. We look forward to providing you with this content online as we practice the recommended safe social distancing measures. 
For those of you who have registered for the Conference, your registration will be transferred to the virtual meeting unless you email Bella@texasnp.org by May 15. If you would like to register for the virtual meeting, please see below.
If you are registered for the Conference and prefer not to participate in the virtual conference you can receive a TNP credit and apply the full registration fee to the Fall Conference, or request a refund (minus a $25 processing fee). Refund requests must be made by May 15. 
If you have any questions, please contact Bella at bella@texasnp.org. 
We appreciate your understanding and certainly appreciate everything you are doing to help keep Texans healthy.
