Lights, Camera, Action: Spotlight on Quality

Each year, IHCA offers the largest convention and expo in the state for long term care professionals. This annual four-day event includes more than 100 educational sessions on a variety of topics and a comprehensive expo that features exhibits on the latest technology and services available to long term care providers. Attendees are also invited to take part in a number of fun, peer-to-peer networking opportunities. The IHCA Excellence Award for Long Term Care Centers (visit the Excellence Awards page for more information) and the LTCNA Nursing Awards are also presented at the annual convention and expo.
Annual LTCNA Awards Information
The LTCNA Nursing Awards are presented at Ovations: A Celebration of Long Term Care Nurses at the annual IHCA Convention & Expo. Though in previous years the nominations were handled in conjunction with the IHCA Staff & Specialty Awards, starting in 2017 each awards program is being handled separately.
