The 2020 National Nurse Educator Summit in Seattle is canceled.

March 10, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) outbreak, ATI Nursing Education has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 National Nurse Educator Summit in Seattle.  

The health and safety of everyone who attends Summit — attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and ATI employees — is our No. 1 priority. With that in mind, to help prevent the spread of the virus, we are following the request of Seattle public health officials to cancel large gatherings, as well as taking into consideration information and evolving guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and numerous travel and event advisories issued by various organizations. 

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this decision causes and trust that you understand that our top concern is your health. 

Our hearts go out to the entire Seattle community, everyone impacted by the virus, and all of you, the dedicated nurse educators who look forward to this event each year. Our team was incredibly excited to see you at Summit. However, you, our vendors, and speakers are what make Summit so special, and it is our duty to make sure that your safety comes first. 

We are refunding all attendees’ registration fees, and no further action is needed on your part. Due to the volume, we expect you will receive your refund in 30 days. We appreciate your patience and understanding. 

We will have more details and FAQs to share soon. Please check back often for the most up-to-date information.

FAQs

Is the event going to be rescheduled?

The 2020 National Nurse Educator Summit will not be rescheduled for a date later this year. Instead, we hope that you will consider enjoying The Best Workweek Ever with us at the 2021 National Nurse Educator Summit, which is planned for April 18–21, 2021, at the La Cantera Resort & Spa in the Hill Country of San Antonio, Texas. Registration information will be sent out soon.

Will I be reimbursed? How soon can I expect to be reimbursed?

We are refunding all attendees’ registration fees effective immediately, and no further action is needed on your part. Due to the volume, we expect you will receive your refund in 30 days. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

How will I be reimbursed?

If you paid by credit card, your registration fees will be refunded back to the credit card used for payment. 

If your institution was invoiced and has not yet paid the invoice, ATI will return (cancel) the invoice. If your institution has already paid the invoice, a credit will be placed on your institution’s account to be applied towards a future invoice.

Do I need to cancel my hotel reservation?

Yes. If you have made hotel reservations, you are responsible for making your own cancellations. If you were attending the Summit as a speaker, hotel reservation cancellations will be made on your behalf.
