2015 Conference Theme & Objectives

The 2015 conference theme, Nursing Science, Evidence, and Policy: Creating a Culture of Health, reflects both the location of Washington as a political/legislative center and the mission of ENRS to advance nursing science. Nurses are engaged in innovative and diverse research endeavors aimed at improving health and quality of life for diverse populations locally and globally. Promoting the translation of nursing science to clinical practice and enhancing the impact of nursing science on health policy are important considerations regardless of research focus.

In the 27th Annual Scientific Sessions, we will celebrate the influence of nursing science on the culture of health with the following objectives:

1.       Describe the generation and application of nursing research to promote high quality, inter-professional health care for diverse populations, locally and globally.

2.       Propose innovative strategies to use nursing science to influence health policy.

3.       Examine approaches to promote translation of research findings into a culture of health.

4.       Explore theoretical and research methodological approaches to promote health through public policy.

27th Annual Scientific Sessions: Hotel & Registration

Registration will open in late December 2014. ENRS has secured a discounted group rate of $259 per night at the  Washington Marriott Wardman Park. This rate will be available until March 16, 2015, or until the block is full, whichever comes first. Hotel reservations will open in Fall 2014.

CFS: Independent Contracting

Special Issue: “Freelancers and Independent Contractors”

Small Enterprise Research: The Journal of SEAANZ

Deadline for Papers: 30th November 2014

Volume 22 Number 2 2015 – ISSN: 1321-5906

Edited by: Dr Tui McKeown (tui.mckeown@monash.edu) and Robyn Cochrane (robyn.cochrane@monash.edu.au) Monash University, Australia

APRNs, nursing scholars researching professional issues, and nurses in consulting are invited to submit papers for this special issue of Small Enterprise Research devoted to Freelancers and Independent Contractors.

The world of work has seen the downsizing and outsourcing of work that once took place as part of a conventional employer-employee relationship. However, today there are a significant number of self-employed independent contractors or ‘freelancers’ working with and within organisations. The concept of a ‘freelancer’ remains vaguely defined in law and poorly understood within the academic literature. Definition of this type of micro-enterprise is also poor with the word ‘freelancer’ used in conjunction with ‘independent contractor’ and other terms. This special issue seeks to understand the nature, characteristics, contributions and challenges facing the freelancer. It also seeks to identify current research activity and directions for future research into this important and growing form of small business.
