13th Annual NANN Research Summit

Deadline: November 15 2017 at 05:00 PM CST - CLOSED

This program is inactive or past the deadline.


Join us for the next Research Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona, April 10-12, 2018 by submitting a Research proposal or Evidence-Based Practice change project that you have implemented or are planning to implement and complete by early Spring 2018.

Selected individuals attend the fully-supported summit to present their research or practice change outcomes and discuss the process and results with other researchers from around the country and the world!

All submissions will undergo a blind review process (i.e., the reviewers are unaware of the applicant's identity) for quality, relevance and merit by the NANN Research Committee Advisory Panel. The deadline for submission has been EXTENDED to November 15, 2017 @ 5 pm CDT and all submitters will be notified in December 2017 regarding the status of their submission. Approximately 20 people will be selected to participate in this program. Individuals who have not presented at the past two Research Summits will be given priority. Selected participants will receive support for their summit attendance as follows:

• Round-trip non-refundable coach airfare to Phoenix from any United States airport/point of origin.
• Two (2) nights hotel accommodations at The Scott Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona. Please note that each participant is asked to share a hotel room with another participant.
• Complimentary meals during the Summit.

Each participant will be allowed 20 minutes for a presentation (15 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussion). Additional information regarding the program will be sent in conjunction with acceptance letters.

This program is made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from Mead Johnson Nutrition.
