The Nurse Scholars Academy encourages Kaiser Permanente nurses to attend local, state, and national conferences within their area of specialty.

Conferences provide registered nurses with up-to-date knowledge, a broader network of colleagues, and opportunities to share their work through poster and podium presentations.

Financial support

Nurses are able to utilize their annual National Tuition Reimbursement benefit to support conference attendance. Each year, nurse leaders are able to submit eligible expenses related to conference attendance for reimbursement up to their annual maximum benefit. Conference registration fees, as well as up to $500 in eligible travel costs are examples of eligible expenses.
