The NSRC’s 2015 State Conference moved to Lincoln this year. Meeting rooms in the Holiday Inn Downtown were packed with more than 160 respiratory care professionals who gathered to earn CEUs and connect with their peers.
Several awards were announced during the conference. Respiratory Therapist of the Year winners were Tim Kelly, Omaha; Christine Villegas, Lincoln and Linda Nelson, outstate.
The AARC Board of Directors met for its spring meeting recently in Dallas, TX and moved ahead on several initiatives that will directly advance the profession. Among the actions were approval of a toolkit and briefing paper to help achieve the goals of the 2015 and Beyond project, as well as approval of new CoARC standards for educational programs.
