Call for Panel Abstracts: RWJF Future of Nursing Scholars Program Convening

May 3, 2021 7:24 pm

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Future of Nursing Scholars program will conclude with a final program convening January 22-23, 2022 in Naples, Florida. This program launched in 2013 to create a diverse cadre of PhD-prepared nurses who would advance science and discovery through research and would lead transformational change in nursing and health care.  When our fifth and final cohort completes their work this fall, we will have graduated 200 PhD-prepared nurse scholars.  Registration for this event will open in the next couple of months. We look forward to celebrating the incredible work of our FNS scholars, amazing nurse leaders who are well poised to have considerable impact on the science.

This event will feature scholar panels as well as learning sessions on a variety of topics.  The program office is accepting panel abstracts which are due by August 1, 2021. Panels will run for 45 minutes with each speaker having 10 minutes to present and 15 minutes reserved for questions.  Scholars and mentors are eligible to submit abstracts.  Participants should organize panels and submit abstracts for consideration in specific topic areas.  We will also accept individual abstracts that our program leaders will cluster into panels.  These may be on a variety of topics.

*Due to space constraints, we regret that we will not be able to accept all abstracts.

Requested panel categories:
  • Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
  • Social Determinants of Health
  • Health Disparities and Increasing Health Equity
  • Understanding Health Behavior
  • Basic Science: Bench to Bedside
  • Chronic Illness and Symptom Management
  • Workforce
