ANVC CONNECT MARCH 24

ASC Phoenix Update
On March 13 & 14, twenty-seven of our colleagues met in Phoenix for the Advanced Stroke Coordinator course recently to validate their knowledge in stroke care excellence, solidify evidence-based systems and practice models for the role and form new network opportunities. We offer our congratulations to our colleagues who passed the certification exam and have attained the ASC-BC (Advanced Stroke Coordinator-Board Certified) credential!

Introducing ANVC Engagement Lounge
During this international pandemic with COVID-19, ANVC would like to ask what you are doing differently to assess and treat stroke patients while maintaining safety. Join us this Thursday, March 26th from 12:00 PM - 1:00PM (CST) for an open discussion on how we are managing to care for patients both in the acute and outpatient settings. The discussion will be accessible via GoToMeetings (see login information below). New to GoToMeeting? Click here to get the app now and be ready when the meeting starts.

Prometric Closes Testing Centers
Prometric (company that provides NVRN-BC computerized exam) has determined it is necessary and appropriate to close their test centers in the United States and Canada for a period of 30 days, starting March 17. This dramatic step is necessary in order to comply with new federal guidance as well as to further protect the health and well-being of the individual test takers and the staff that provide services at each of the testing locations. They anticipate re-opening test centers effective April 16, however, please note that the specific date will be dependent on circumstances that are changing daily.

Celebrate 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife! Nominate your colleagues who are making significant contributions to the care of stroke patients and programs. Go to www.anvc.org/yearofthenurseandmidwife for more information on how to nominate a colleague today!
