Why does APSNA matter to your company?
APSNA is seeking corporate sponsors to support APSNAs vision to be the leading authority for the nursing care of pediatric surgical patients. We understand that the successful delivery of pediatric surgical care requires a team and key members of that team are nurses and allied professionals who have the education and experience necessary to safely and expertly care for pediatric surgical patients of all ages. Members of APSNA are diverse, employed in a broad range of settings and roles that make our organization and members unique. Pediatric surgical care is often highly technical and reliant on the proficient application of devices and products that assist the APSNA members in their clinical responsibilities. With healthcare facilities now demanding formal and thorough evaluation of product purchases, nurses in specialties such as pediatric surgery are being asked to be part of supply chain or value analysis processes in product evaluation. This array of products is vast and evolving and the challenge for both corporations and professionals alike is to stay on top of trends that can have a real value in improving the care to patients. This effort requires a continuous exchange of information, conversations and collaborations between industry and clinicians. Corporations that partner with APSNA extend their reach to a wider audience of clinicians across the country in two ways. By selecting web-based promotions your company can share your products throughout the year. And, by attending our annual conference you will have access to our attendees and the ability to address registrants one on one to share information about your business, products and services. Together, these methods of sponsorship widen your reach to surgical nurses throughout the country, leading to proactive and vetted processes of purchase committees.
All sponsorship opportunities require the approval of APSNA, based on the following criteria:
- Your organization/company's products, service, mission or purpose shall not conflict with APSNA's Mission and Vision and Core Values.
- The organization/company's promotional materials shall not imply or state an endorsement by APSNA unless such endorsement has been secured.
We require 2 weeks from the receipt of your payment to process your request - but this is often accomplished more quickly. If you have any questions about an order please contact us.
