Scheduled Call for Abstracts
All call for abstracts for the 2015-2016 conference season are now closed. Please stay tuned for further details regarding the 2016-2017 call for abstracts.
AACN invites abstracts describing programs, courses, initiatives, or evaluation strategies that characterize the conference theme, addressing the many changes and challenges in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. Each abstract should include background information and a description of methods, programs, or practices. It also should include summary recommendations for others who may be considering a similar approach. Abstracts should describe original work and can include work in progress. Selected abstracts are allotted either a 25-minute time slot (20 minutes presentation with 5 minutes questions and answers) or a poster presentation. Submitters are asked to indicate which format they prefer, although reviewers may suggest a different format to selected submitters. Posters and abstract presentations may have been presented elsewhere or published within the past two years. In that case, please plan to update the material and make it specific to the event.
Presenters will be asked to identify any potential conflict of interest related to the content to be offered (e.g., commercial interest, affiliation with a vendor, and/or receipt of royalties) and affirm that their abstract presentations will not be used to sell a particular product or service.
On the date of the “Scheduled Call for Abstracts”, a link will be made available so that submitters may gain access to the submission site. Submitters will then create an account to upload their abstract, list abstract authors, and provide contact information for all authors. Abstracts are formatted automatically and have approximately a 500-word limit (one page). Submitters may access the site as often as they like to modify the document until the final submission deadline, and have control over when the abstract finally is submitted. This is a blind review process, and reviewers do not see submitters’ names or school affiliations.
