The 17th biennial conference will be held in Bemidji, MN known as the first city on the Mississippi and home to lumberjack legend Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox. The Hampton Inn and the DoubleTree Hotel (adjacent to one another) are located on the shores of Lake Bemidji. Paved hiking trails right outside the hotel doors lead hikers around the lake and into Bemidji State Park. September in northern Minnesota is a perfect time to experience the fall colors. Visitors may enjoy the changing leaves on the 30-minute drive to the Headwaters of the Mississippi in Itasca State Park.
Come explore the nature and Northwoods of Bemidji, Minnesota and enjoy a nursing conference that invigorates and reenergizes the mind and soul.
