2023 Virtual Nursology Theory Conference

Abstract Submission open through December 1, 2022

One of the few “gifts” of the COVID19 Pandemic is that we learned the value and benefits of virtual approaches – one of the most important of which is accessibility. So we have decided to maintain this approach going forward, in order to make this important conference available worldwide, at an affordable cost, with an emphasis on creating communities of scholars who are bringing new perspectives to the development of nursing knowledge!

Each year we feature a theme that brings to the forefront important historical landmarks that formed the foundational frameworks for nursing knowledge. the 2023 theme is “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). 

Abstract submission is open from October 1 through December 1, 2022. Follow this site to get notification of information we post on the blog as plans for the conference unfold!
