Conference Purpose

This conference provides an opportunity for nurses to learn the mechanics of the research process through interactions with experienced nurse researchers.  Novice and seasoned researchers are invited to submit abstracts on completed projects relevant to clinical practice, administration, or education.  Strong consideration will be given to presentations or posters that describe performance improvement projects with enhanced clinical outcomes linking everyday nursing practice to research.  Quantitative or qualitative research designs and evidence-based practice projects are invited to participate.  We encourage graduate nursing students, nurses in clinical practice, and nurses in academic and administrative settings to use this forum to present their work.
