Your symposium is as good as anything NANN or ANN provides. Continue to provide the excellent programs that you do. First Coast Neonatal Symposiums are well organized with excellent topics and speakers. FCNS consistently provides educational opportunities that exceed my expectations. I am never disappointed.

This has been such a worthwhile experience! EVERY speaker and topic was interesting and informative. I am definitely planning on returning next year! This is one of the best conferences I have been to in recent years. I cannot think of ANYTHING that was not superlative – ran like a well-oiled machine.

“This symposium is a “Hidden gem.” Incredible value in education for price. The food provided was delicious and varied, plentiful and beautifully presented. Liked all the different break events/snacks. The speakers were quite knowledgable but, best of all, approachable. ​​​ ​​​​Gail Shiminski, RN ​​​​Erlanger Health System ​​​​Chattanooga, TN
