The NLN Foundation has scheduled a Fall Writing Retreat to be held from November 3 – December 2, 2012 at the Mt. Royal Hotel and Conference Center in Baltimore, MD. Leslie H. Nicoll, PhD, MBA, RN will be the facilitator. Leslie Block of the NLN will also be onsite in Baltimore, assisting participants with their final drafts prior to submission
The NLN Scholarly Writing Retreat is designed to help nurse educators enhance writing skills and disseminate research findings and other work in scholarly publications. By the end of the retreat, the goal is for each participant to have a complete, edited paper ready for submission to a scholarly journal. Due to the intense nature of the work, retreat participants are limited to ten and selected through a competitive application process. Participants work closely with the facilitator for two months prior to the retreat, interacting via telephone, email, and the private blog created specially for the retreat, My Name in Print!. Participants will have access to the facilitator for up to one year after the retreat ends, to assist them through the revision and resubmission process. Access to the blog is ongoing.
The retreat is funded by a generous grant from Pocket Nurse Enterprises, Inc., and the NLN Foundation for Education.
Applications are due by August 20, 2012. To learn more about the retreat and download an application, click here: http://www.nlnfoundation.org/Scholarly_Writing_Retreat.cfm
