Post University is also a proud sponsor of the 2023 Student & Faculty Poster Awards this year. American Sentinel College of Nursing & Health Sciences at Post University offers a myriad of degree programs including RN-BSN, RN-BSN/MSN, MSN, MSN-NP, DNP, and MBA-Healthcare.

“Post University is proud to sponsor the poster process in order to support students’ research efforts, provide opportunities to sharpen presentation skills, and increase visibility within the research community,” said Kimberly Nerud Ph.D., RN, who serves as dean for American Sentinel College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Post University.

Thanks to the generous support of Tracjecsys and Post University, the top three posters in both faculty and student categories will be awarded:

  • First Prize: $750
  • Second Prize: $500
  • Third Prize: $250

Poster presentations provide students with the opportunity to present original research, hone their evidence-based practice competencies, and develop their skills as public speakers. Top consideration will be given to poster abstracts that present well-designed research or demonstration projects, particularly those that are evidence-based and include data.

This year’s convention theme, Turning the Tide of Nursing Education, focuses on innovative strategies and solutions to address the unique challenges and opportunities facing associate degree nursing (ADN). Nursing students have weathered community societal challenges and have emerged resilient recognizing the need to rise up and create a better today and turn the tide for a brighter future.  Our joint journey through recent past challenges shined the spotlight on many key areas that ADN programs are now addressing to better prepare new graduate nurses.

Deadline for Student Posters extended to October 16, 2023
