Call for Student Posters: 2023 OADN Convention

July 25, 2023


Deadline to submit student poster abstracts Extended to: October 16, 2023

The Organization for Associate Degree Nursing (OADN) invites Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) students to submit poster abstracts for the 2023 OADN Convention, November 15th – 18th, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California.

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.

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.

Poster Topics may include:

  • Identifying existing barriers and proposing strategies to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in nursing education
  • Quality and safety interventions to improve patient outcomes
  • Fostering healthy working environments and nurse well-being
  • Identifying innovative approaches to clinical learning experiences
  • Simulation and virtual simulation
  • Discussing strategies to build inclusive learning communities
  • Developing clinical judgment
  • Transition to practice initiatives
  • Expanding access to education through creative academic progression and other strategies
  • Promoting strategies to generate and support the development of nurses as leaders
  • Leveraging the social mission of nursing education to achieve learning outcomes and advance health equity
