2nd Annual Nursing Theory Conference cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic

It was with great sadness that we had to make the decision, on March 9, 2020, to cancel the much-anticipated 2nd Annual Nursing Theory Conference.  We had a terrific program, which included 69 breakout sessions – presentations by participants documenting and discussing the latest developments in nursing theory and philosophy.  We will be retaining the material for each of the breakout sessions, as well as the plenary sessions on this website.  All of this information will be permanently retained on this site on the 2020 Nursing Theory Conference Archive.  We are also exploring other ways to facilitate virtual presentations of this important work.

Over the coming few weeks, we will turn our focus to the 2021 conference that will be held in Memphis, Tennessee at the University of Tennessee College of Nursing, where they are in the process of establishing the Margaret A. Newman Endowed Chair   We are working with all of those who had planned to be on the 2020 program to facilitate their updated participation for 2021.  The enthusiasm and energy for the Nursing Theory Conference initiative has been amazing, and we know that this will persist as we continue to plan for the future!

We encourage everyone to follow this blog – we will post updated information about provisions for sharing 2020 presentations virtually, and about the very latest as we plan for 2021!  If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please use our contact form and let us know!
