CALL FOR ABSTRACTS ON ENHANCING NURSING EDUCATION
Sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the 2010 Conference on Enhancing Nursing Undergraduate Teaching and Learning in the Clinical Setting: What do we know and how do we move forward? will be held October 19-21, 2010 in Arlington, VA. This working-group conference will bring together today’s nursing education and practice thought leaders to share best practices and insights regarding academic-practice partnerships, clinical faculty expansion and development, and non-traditional practice settings. Individuals are invited to submit abstracts for presentation that describe new knowledge or lessons learned based on the following themes: Building effective educational-clinical partnerships; clinicians as faculty members; and strengthening clinical skills and clinical education. Abstracts may address evidence-based practice, quality improvement, clinical reasoning/critical thinking, and other areas. The conference will include presentations, posters, and facilitated roundtable sessions. Conference abstracts – which must be no more than 500 words – are due by 5:00 pm PST (8:00 pm EST) on August 2, 2010. For details, including how to submit abstracts, contact Aram Dobalian at Aram.Dobalian@va.gov .
