It is that time of year again, when forensic nurses throughout the world should be thinking about submitting an abstract for review for presentation at the International Conference on Forensic Nursing Science and Practice. This year's conference will be held in Reno, NV, October 24-27, 2018. Abstracts for 90-Minute Concurrent Sessions are due February 12, 2018 at 12 Midnight Eastern Time. Abstracts for Poster Submissions are due May 7, 2018 at 12 Midnight Eastern Time. For further information and to submit an abstract please see http://www.forensicnurses.org/?page=2018Abstracts.
While you are preparing your abstract for submission, please keep in mind that this is also an ideal opportunity to consider writing up your presentation for publication in the Journal of Forensic Nursing. I know personally how daunting writing can be, especially when trying to write in addition to everything else that is on my plate. Sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day, or days in the week. I am sure this resonates with many of you reading this. I would be interested in discussing your ideas for a publication further. Please feel free to contact me through our editorial office http://www.editorialmanager.com/jfn or email me directly at email@example.com.
All the best for a healthy and productive year!
