Community, Connections, and Contributions: Nurses Shaping the Future of Healthcare

The Pennsylvania State Nurses Association (PSNA), the state’s leading professional nursing organization representing more than 217,000 registered nurses, will hold a “Community, Connections, and Contributions: Nurses Shaping the Future of Healthcare” conference at Camelback Resort, Poconos on October 27, 2017.

This collaborative event will be organized by PSNA and the PSNA Environmental Health Committee. We encourage poster and podium presentations focused on the environment and healthcare, as well as abstracts highlighting the important work of professional nurses in our communities, hospitals, schools, homes, etc.

All nurses, regardless of experience or area of work, are invited to submit a poster or podium presentation abstract. Is this your first presentation? We’re here to help! PSNA will arrange for mentor guidance and will walk you through the process.

Benefits of Presenting

There is a real reward to engaging with other conference participants during the poster and podium sessions. You will find yourself in lively discussions with other nurses on ideas, plans, and questions. Not only does this enrich your practice, but sharing your work is a generous act that can positively impact patients across the state.

PSNA invites all nurses – and their families – to be a part of the celebration. Camelback Resort has an indoor waterpark, rock climbing walls, spas, arcades, outdoor activities, and more.
