The N52 is on a one-quarter inch block. When the block size is doubled, the N52 magnet has a pull force of more than 32-pounds.

The ANCC National Magnet Conference will offer more than 150 concurrents. Attendees will be able to test new magnet technologies and products. Students can earn nursing education hours for partaking in the conference while networking, learn about advances in magnet technology for medical use, and listen to inspirational presentations from peers.
