With ever-changing healthcare practices, technologies, and therapeutic approaches in eye care, it’s vital our nurse members stay up-to-date on all the advancements in our field.

We offer clinical meetings and TeleED (online) meetings, scheduled throughout the year – on topics tailored to the needs of our members – as well as our annual AONA conference.

You'll earn CPD points at each of our educational events.
