SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT FOR NANN'S 2019 CONFERENCE
The Planning Committee Call for Abstracts is now open. NANN and the Program Planning Committee invite you to submit an abstract to present during the 2019 Annual Conference in Savannah, Georgia. The deadline to apply is January 7, 2019.
The Program Planning Committee and the Education Provider Committee have identified the need to cover a wide range of topics that will appeal to both the novice and expert neonatal nurses. As a result, the committees created a list of topics and areas of interest to make the application selection process less cumbersome and more diverse to better meet the educational needs of conference attendees. The list is not inclusive and is only meant to serve as a guide when submitting your abstract. We encourage you to suggest your own ideas, present your own research findings, and share your knowledge on a topic of interest. Please keep in mind that application submissions should focus on nursing, be state-of-the-art and evidence-based, and challenge neonatal nurses at all levels of expertise.
