2024 OADN Convention Call for Podium & Poster Abstracts
In celebration of OADN’s 40th Anniversary, we invite nurse educators, administrators, simulationists, researchers, interprofessional colleagues, and students to submit abstracts for the OADN Annual Convention, planned for October 31 – November 3, 2024, at the Marriott Water Street in Tampa, Florida. The call is for concurrent sessions (50-minute podium presentations, including Q&A) and posters.
Theme: Bridging the Past to Build the Future
OADN’s 40th Anniversary Convention theme recognizes the historic role of the associate degree pathway on our nation’s healthcare workforce and patients in every community. Together, we will shine a light on the extraordinary impact of associate degree nursing educators and the collective achievements of OADN members, who have tirelessly advocated for the associate degree pathway over the past forty years.
As we look to the future, we invite you to reflect on how you navigated past challenges, seized opportunities, and were able to deliver success stories for your program faculty, students, and the community you serve. Please share innovative techniques, new knowledge, meaningful collaborations, and best practices to help ensure we continue delivering excellence in nursing education and support the future generation of registered nurses over the next 40 years and beyond.

General Information on the Submission Process
Abstracts that present well-designed demonstrations or evidence-based pilot projects that include data are preferred.
A maximum of four (4) presenters will be considered with your abstract submission. The primary presenter will be the main point of contact for all communication with OADN and is responsible for ensuring that co-presenters complete necessary action steps in preparation for the convention.
OADN requires all presenters to identify any existing or potential conflicts of interest related to the content to be offered (e.g., commercial interest, affiliation with a vendor, and/or receipt of royalties) and affirm that their abstract presentations will not be used to sell a particular product or service.
All presenters must register and pay as attendees for the OADN Convention. Presenters are responsible for their own expenses, including the above-referenced registration fee, travel, accommodations, and other expenses.
Please note: OADN encourages all those submitting a podium abstract to submit it 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. Abstract submissions must include:
Brief Description (max. 100 words)
Background/Introduction (max. 150 words)
Intervention/Description and/or Research Methods (max. 200 words)
The Poster Abstract Submission Deadline is 5 PM Eastern on May 20, 2024.
General Information on the Review Process
Each abstract is peer-reviewed by at least two OADN Abstract Review Committee reviewers.
Reviews are blind; hence, reviewers do not see submitters’ names or program affiliations.
If your podium abstract is accepted for presentation, the OADN Abstract Review Committee will withdraw your corresponding poster abstract from consideration. You may also submit a poster abstract on a different subject from your podium abstract for consideration.
Notifications of Acceptance will be delivered to primary presenters in the Summer of 2024.
