40th Annual NPO Education Conference

The 40th Annual NPO Education Conference will be held at Salishan Spa and Golf Resort in beautiful Gleneden Beach on the Oregon Coast. The conference will open on the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 4 and run through Saturday, Oct. 7.

The conference is designed to support the professional practice and learning needs of nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants and other interested health care providers by providing a variety of evidence-based educational topics.

Learners will review and discuss current evidence-based practices focusing in primary care, psychiatric-mental health and pediatrics.


Since 1977 NPO has held an educational conference every year at various locations in Oregon. Between 200-350 NPs attend every year and are able to network with colleagues, meet local specialists, and receive high quality continuing education at a reasonable price close to home. The first conference was held in a Lincoln City at an elementary school. More recently the conference has been held in various resorts such as Sunriver, Hood River, and Salishan.

The NPO conference is organized by a volunteer committee who contacts speakers and staffs the conference. Many hours of volunteer work go into the conference every year and any profits made are used to provide scholarships for NP students and support other worthy causes and activities of NPO.

The NPO annual educational conference has brought nationally known speakers to Oregon and utilized local experts in areas of primary care including women’s health, general family practice, pediatrics, and psych/mental health content.

Membership in ONA/NPO entitles the attendee to a nearly 50% discount in conference registration fees.
