Wheat State Summit Geared Toward Education for Advanced Practice Nurses

The KU Area Health Education Center will hosting the 2016 Wheat State Summit which was created to serve the continuing education needs of advanced practice nurses across Kansas. The summit is held as two separate events: The Western Kansas Advanced Nursing Practice Symposium on October 21-22, 2016, at the Sternberg Museum of Natural History in Hays, Kansas; and the Eastern Kansas Advanced Nursing Practice Symposium on December 9-10, 2016, on the campus of Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas.

The Wheat State Summit is designed to enhance the skills needed by advanced practice nurses to improve the overall quality of patient care. This year’s topics will include an update on legislative issues, HPV, pain management, alternative and complimentary therapies, and many more.

The Wheat State Summit originally began in 2008 in collaboration with the Great Plains Nurse Practitioner Society in western Kansas. It was organized under a different name and held every other year in Hays, Kansas. In 2014, the KU Area Health Education Center decided to expand the program to serve the entire state by adding a second location in eastern Kansas. The Wheat State Summit continues the every other year model, and the Great Plains Nurse Practitioner Society continues as a partner on the Western Kansas Advanced Nursing Practice Symposium.
