The committee is planning to hold the annual event on April 4, 2023.

The Research and Scholarly Activities Committee cordially invites you to submit an abstract from February 10, 2023, to March 03, 2023.  The committee will seek abstracts related to research, literature matrices, concept analyses, systematic reviews, evidence-based projects, leadership/management/education projects, magnet projects, DNP capstone projects, and other scholarly activities. The number of poster presentations will be capped at 32. Announcement of accepted abstracts will be sent to the corresponding author on March 24th, 2023.  

Earlier submissions will be considered first, so please plan ahead. If the abstract is accepted, it is conditional until registration to attend the conference is completed. Additionally, posters will be judged and awarded first, second, and third places. The conference is a wonderful opportunity to display your work.
