Mission: Empowering Nurses through Education, Opportunity, Recognition, and Advocacy
The mission of this conference is to empower nurses through education, opportunity, recognition, and advocacy. Cannabis Nurses Network (CNN) is a global network of Nurses and Professionals who wish to collaborate and network together on the most up-to-date information and education on cannabis therapeutics from around the globe.
“As more countries and states are legalizing cannabis and medical cannabis, the need for cannabis education is more important for health care providers and individuals than ever before. By educating Nurses on the science behind the plant and providing a global nursing network, throughout the world by planting seeds of knowledge within their communities and states.” -Nurse Juhlzie Monteiro, RN, BSK
