Proposals are currently being accepted for the Emergency Nursing 2020 Annual Meeting, September 8-11, 2020, at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. You may stop and start your submission at any time, save and return to it later, but only prior to the submission deadline.

Presentations offer the opportunity to exchange ideas, network and impact the quality of education for emergency nurses. Abstracts should reflect sound adult learning principles and the best thinking in the field, informed by theory, research and practice.

CONTENT: Reflect innovative, cutting-edge content and evidence-based practice • Present evidence supported by relevant research or data • Explore issues important to diverse audiences • Demonstrate the relevance of lessons through “real-life” case studies

INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN: Stimulate and provoke discussion, audience engagement and outcome-focused design • Facilitate knowledge transfer and development of new competencies • Use methods that draw out relevant past knowledge and experiences
