Call for Posters: 2019 Annual Conference

Submit your poster abstract for our annual conference in June!

2019 Consortium Annual Conference: Call for Posters

The 2019 National Nurse Practitioner Residency and Fellowship Training Consortium (NNPRFTC) is accepting poster abstracts on topics about advanced practice postgraduate training in primary, specialty and acute care. The purpose is to contribute to our professional community of practice by sharing ideas, best practices, how we overcome challenges, and exemplars of postgraduate training. Examples might be a description of an APRN post graduate training experience (curriculum, evaluation, faculty development, academic partnership, etc.), implementing interdisciplinary programs, collaborations that result in innovation and excellence.  (Please note–The information presented must be free from commercial bias.)


What Is a Poster and How Does it Work?

A poster is a visual way to disseminate and share your innovations. It is a hybrid of a written paper and an oral presentation that enhances one-on-one networking opportunities for conference attendees. A poster could stand alone without a presenter, but the presenter enhances the information. Presenters stand alongside to stress key points, answer questions, and receive feedback.

Accepted posters should be printed on fabric that can be ‘wall mounted’ in a poster board space that extends HORIZONTALLY. The poster dimensions should be 48” wide x 36” high. Please make sure your poster is designed and printed according to these dimensions.

Poster Presentations: Presenter Requirements, Cancellation and No-Show Policy

NNPRFTC views a submission of an abstract as a commitment by the author(s) to present the poster/abstract if their submission is accepted. Late cancellations and failures to give scheduled presentations without prior notification (“no-shows”) are disruptive and inconvenient for conference attendees and organizers. NNPRFTC has adopted the following policies to prevent avoidable cancellations and no-shows and to improve the overall quality of our programs:

Presenter Requirements

The lead author of a poster submission is the designated contact and poster presenter for that submission (if accepted). The lead author of an ACCEPTED poster must register for the NNPRFTC conference, at the appropriate rate, in order to present their poster at their scheduled session time.Presenter CancellationsIf the lead author cannot attend, presentation by a co-author is acceptable. However, the lead author is responsible for notifying NNPRFTC staff, via email, of the change and ensuring that their replacement is registered and paid in full for all NNPRFTC conference fees. Please make every effort to notify NNPRFTC of presenter cancellations and presenter changes by May 16, 2019.Abstract Withdrawal

We ask to be notified of poster withdrawal by May 16, 2019. Please email the notification to withdraw posters to NNPRFTC staff.
