The theme for this year’s conference will be “Creating Communities to Inspire Nursing Knowledge Development,” inspired by the work of four leading nurse theorists from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) – Dorothy Johnson (Behavioral Systems), Sr. Callista Roy (Adaptation), Betty Neuman (Systems Model), and Afaf Meleis (Transitions). As you develop your abstract, consider the networks of support that have influenced your ideas and reflect these influences in your submission.
Please use the abstract submission form to submit an abstract for the Virtual Nursing Theory Week to be held from March 16-20, 2023. Deadline for submission: December 1, 2022. Notification of status: December 31, 2022. Each session will be 30 minutes; we recommend 20 minutes to present plus 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
We will also have an ongoing poster session during the five days of the conference. Please indicate if you would like to be selected for a podium presentation, poster session, or either, depending on conference needs.
All presenters must register and attend the virtual event. If there are co-presenters, all presenters must register. Co-authors on a project, who will not be attending the VNTW, can be listed on the abstract and thanked in an acknowledgement, but they will not be listed as presenters on the conference program that is published in Guidebook. On this form, please only list co-presenters who will be registering and attending the VNTW.
Note that you need to have all the information compiled before filling out this form; once you start filling out the information you need to complete and submit. It is not possible to save the form and return to it later to finish.
