Information About APEA Events in Light of COVID-19

**Updated April 2**

Advanced Practice Education Associates is closely monitoring the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic and all mandates and guidance from local and national health agencies, as well as local governments. The health and safety of APEA customers and employees is our foremost concern. APEA is fully operational during this national crisis.

APEA is following recommendations to suspend public gatherings. All APEA Live Review Courses scheduled through June 2 are being provided in a live webinar format. If you have already registered for a course scheduled between March 15 and June 2, you will receive emails with important information and links. Please check the inbox for the email address you used to register, including your spam and junk folders. If you are searching for a live review course, please see our detailed 2020 schedule here. This list will be updated as guidance is issued, so please visit this page often.
