We invite all interested nurses (RPNs & RNs) and organizations to consider submitting an abstract for either concurrent session or poster presentation that will take place on Friday September 29, 2017. This is a great opportunity to share with your colleagues across the province. The Conference Committee has developed a number of themes that will be addressed throughout the conference and are meant to stimulate you to share your knowledge & experience.


All abstracts must be submitted online.

You need to use the field provided to clearly identify whether you are submitting as a concurrent session or poster presentation. It will be helpful to have your abstract (no more than 300 words) and brief biography in MS Word format so that you can cut and paste these into the appropriate sections.

Your abstract should be informative stating the problem, issue or project in the first paragraph.
