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 Clinical Roundups and Expert Presentations) 

  • Concurrent Expert presentations are 60-90 minutes in length, and cover clinical, professional or general pediatric healthcare issues. Concurrent presentations are designed to offer innovative topics relevant to pediatric health care and the pediatric-focused advance practice registered nurse (APRN) role. Preference is given to novel topics that are supported by a strong needs assessment. It is important that topics have strong clinical application, originality and are evidence based.

  • Clinical Roundup sessions are 60-75 minutes. The sessions consist of 3 speakers, each presenting for 15 minutes a unique aspect of a specific issue or set of issues that range from primary care to acute care, with time built in for questions and answers. The list of topics will be announced by the end of May.   

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. Submission information and deadlines will be available by the end of May.

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. Information about our Research and Practice Innovation Poster guidelines and submission deadlines will be available by early summer.

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.
