SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT FOR NANN'S 2020 CONFERENCE

The National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) Annual Conference Committee Call for Abstracts is now open. NANN and the Annual Conference Committee invite you to submit an abstract during the 2020 Annual Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. Deadline to apply is January 7, 2020.

The Annual Conference Committee has identified the need to cover a wide range of topics that will appeal to both the novice and expert neonatal nurses. As a result, we have provided a list of topics and areas of interest in order to make the application selection process less cumbersome and more diverse to better meet the educational needs of the 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, or share your knowledge on a topic of interest. Please keep in mind that application submissions should focus on nursing, be state-of-the-art, evidence-based and challenge neonatal nurses at all levels of expertise.

To view the topics being considered for submission, please visit www.nann.org/abstracts.
