Meet the Speakers

We are excited to share we set a new record that featured 87 RN’s and APRN’s poster presentations among the 333 poster presentations included in Research and Education week.  Participants could earn and claim 8.5 continuing Nursing Education Contact Hours or 4 Continuing Medical Education Credits for attending one or more of the presentations offered.  

We appreciate your participation and contribution to the program this year as an active participant, poster presenter, speaker,expert panelist, planning committee member or administrative volunteer.  We’d like to share the overall program evaluations rated us at 90% very good to excellent for achieving personal learning goals. 

“ I met and connected with nurses who shared similar interests to mine” 

“ I loved the poster presentations and found a poster presenter I can collaborate with in the future”

“I want to tell nurses at my hospital about the napping study and excited to learn about ANA’s Fighting Fatigue recommendations to promote safety with nursing at my hospital”

Check out the photo album for the day.

Nurses question, discover, innovate and heal as they engage in lifelong learning and transform care.  Thank you for contributing to the day set aside to highlight nursing scholarship and for participating in Research and Education week 2016.  Because of your contribution and the contributions of our esteemed colleagues we can look forward to April 28th 2017 to convene the next Annual Nursing Research & Quality Outcomes program!  Mark your calendars now!  Thank you!
