As of Wednesday, March 11, the NLN and Sigma made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Nursing Education Research Conference (NERC) scheduled for March 26-28 in Washington, DC.
This is a decision we did not make lightly. With attendee safety and security as our guiding principle, we reviewed the latest information on the continued COVID-19 outbreak – including updated CDC guidance and numerous college and university travel bans – and determined cancellation to be the correct course of action.
Registered NERC attendees and exhibitors will receive additional information via email by Friday, March 20.
Important note: Individuals are responsible for cancelling hotel and travel arrangements directly. To avoid any cancellation fees, the hotel must be notified at least 72 hours prior to scheduled arrival. Many airlines are making changes to their cancellation policies as well.
