Get Your Employer to Pay Your Way
The ACNM 61st Annual Meeting is the most important professional development opportunity of the year for midwives. You'll learn so much new information, gain new techniques, and find out about the newest technology in women's health care -- all in the same place. Then you’ll bring it back to your practice to increase patient safety and quality of care. In fact, you'll get so much value from the Annual Meeting that your employer may be willing to help pay for some or all of your meeting expenses. Here are a few tips and tools to help you gain your employer's support.
