Call for Abstracts

As The Leader in Pediatric Education for Nurse Practitioners®, we pride ourselves on providing our conference participants with innovative, advanced education on child health, practice and advocacy issues relevant to pediatric-focused APRNs and their healthcare partners.

Concurrent Presentations (Including Speed Sessions and Expert Presentations) 

  • Concurrent Expert presentations are 60-90 minutes in length, and cover clinical, professional or general pediatric healthcare issues. (The deadline had passed). The results will be communicated by end of August. 
  • Speed Sessions are an opportunity to convey a big idea in a small amount of time. Presenters share exciting concepts, tools and success stories—in just five minutes! Each Speed Session is scheduled to allow 5-minute individual presentations with the use of visual media and a maximum of five PowerPoint slides. This format is expected to offer speaking experience to novice presenters, but presenters of all experience levels may apply.  
    (The deadline had passed). The results will be communicated by end of September.

Intensive Workshops ("hands-on" or interactive audience)

  • We are looking for creative and innovative 2+ hour sessions that will provide skills training or may offer an in-depth review on a condition or topic. IWS sessions may require special arrangements to allow for extensive interaction between the audience and the presenter, increased time for the session, special equipment requirements or hands-on opportunities for the participant. The deadline had passed. The results will be communicated by end of September. 

Posters (Research, Practice Innovation and Industry-Sponsored)

  • NAPNAP’s Conference Planning Committee and Research Committee are excited to provide a forum for presenters to showcase your initiated or completed pediatric health care-related nursing research or provide innovative practice models and topics with a future-oriented perspective. Visit the Posters on the Move webpage today for guidelines and begin drafting your proposals. The deadline for clinical research and research protocol/methodology poster abstracts is September 15. The deadline for practice innovation poster abstracts is October 1.

Keynote/General Sessions

  • Keynote and general sessions are meant for the entire conference audience, usually focused on a current hot topic in child health or advanced practice nursing or have a inspirational, humorous or futuristic theme. NAPNAP only accepts submissions via an online application query process. Unfortunately, queries that come through e-mail or promotional mailings cannot be reviewed. Generic “canned” topics that do not address the NAPNAP membership specifically are not considered. Learn more about NAPNAP guidelines. All applications received are reviewed and remain on file for three years. Please do not submit clinical topics through the keynote application process. Decisions made annually by August 1.
