The IOMSN is considered the nursing experts in MS care and MS education throughout the world. Organizations approach us daily with requests to review and endorse educational materials for nurses and patients. In addition, we have received numerous requests for nurse speakers.

Our organization is worldwide, and we need speakers to cover the globe. In order to meet the vast educational needs, we have developed a volunteer IOMSN speaker’s bureau. As we want to provide consistency and a high level of expertise, interested nurses must complete an application process to become an IOMSN speaker.
