The NPA is issuing a Call for Posters for our 35th Annual Conference to be held October 16 – October 20, 2019 at the Turning Stone Resort, Verona, NY.
The poster provides the opportunity to report ongoing and completed research utilization projects, clinical projects, evidence-based practices and best practices. We encourage students of NP, PhD and DNP programs to submit a poster abstract. Students may want to work with their faculty advisors in preparing the posters.
Deadline for poster submissions is October 1. No submissions will be accepted after this date.
All posters will be displayed during the conference in designated areas. All posters must be mounted on a solid board (such as foam board) and cannot exceed 48" x 36". The NPA will provide easels for the posters. Authors will not actually present their poster, but will need to be stationed near their poster during designated times.
The Conference Committee will review all poster submissions. The primary contact person will be notified by email of the committee's decision. Approved submissions will be provided with further instructions.
Please Note: The maximum number of poster abstracts per primary author is limited to three (3).
All submissions must be sent by completing the form below.
1). The primary author for the poster submission must be a current member of The NPA;
2). The primary author must be registered for and attend the annual conference. In the event that the primary author is unable to register and attend the annual conference, then another contributing author must register and attend the annual conference.
Posters can be for:
1). Completed research, research in progress, methodological papers, or theoretical perspectives for research design
2). Administration, education, informatics, ethics, basic science, or clinical research
1). Abstracts must be no longer than 500 words
2). The content described must be appropriate for an e-poster presentation
3). Research abstracts must include title and author information
4). Purpose, methodology, results, and implications for NPs must be clearly identified
5). Please send cover letter that contains the following:
a). Title of Presentation

Helpful Hints in writing Objectives:
Identify the Level of Knowledge Necessary to Achieve Your Objective - Before you begin writing objectives, stop and think about what type of change you want your training to make. In other words, what do you want your participants to do differently when they return to work? The domains of learning can be categorized as attitude, skills, and knowledge.
Select an Action Verb - Now that you’ve identified what domain you intend to focus on for your objective, it’s time to start crafting your objective. To do that, it’ll help to have an action verb to describe the behavior at the appropriate level of learning. Here’s a list of action verbs, separated by domain. Avoid having more than one action verb for each level of learning, and make sure it’s a verb that can be measured. “Understand” is too vague, but “complete,” “identify,” “recognize”, "discuss", or "describe" are specific.
