The goal of the conference is for nurses to get pharmacology hours that is required for them to keep their license.

Each nurse must complete about 25 hours every five years and organizers says it is often difficult to get those hours.

The goal of the conference is to educate nurses and pharmacists keeping them updated on the policies and procedures.

Organizers of the event say they hope to see more registered nurses, pharmacists, and pharmacy students at the event next year.
