The Organization for Associate Degree Nursing (OADN) invites nurse educators, program administrators, practitioners, and those interested in nursing education to submit abstracts for the OADN annual convention, planned for November 15-18 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego. The call is for concurrent sessions (50 minutes) and posters.
The convention theme this year, “Turning the Tide of Nursing Education,” focuses on the innovative strategies and solutions that nurse educators are employing to address the unique challenges and opportunities facing associate degree nursing (ADN) programs.
Faculty, leaders, and 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. This year’s OADN Convention is your opportunity to share the creative and resourceful strategies that you are using to ensure the success of your students and programs.
Your nurse educator colleagues from across the country want to hear from you! Whether you are an individual nurse educator, group of educators, dean/director, clinical coordinator, simulationist, practice partner, regulator, or community stakeholder, you have a story to tell about how you are supporting the next generation of registered nurses. Please consider telling the story of how you are addressing the challenges and opportunities facing your program by submitting an abstract to the 2023 OADN Convention.
The OADN Membership has requested topics that include:
Abstracts that present well-designed demonstration or pilot projects that are evidence-based or include data are preferred. A maximum of four presenters will be considered with your abstract submission. All presenters are required to register and pay as an attendee for the Convention.
Please note: OADN encourages all those submitting a podium abstract to additionally submit as a poster abstract, as well. Podium abstracts that are not accepted for presentation *will not* automatically be considered for poster presentation. Please submit your abstract through both the podium and poster links to be considered for both options. If your podium abstract is accepted for presentation, then the committee will withdraw your corresponding poster abstract from consideration. You may also submit a poster abstract on a different subject for separate consideration.
To submit an abstract, complete the appropriate form via the links below.
