2023 Call for Abstracts
The National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) Annual Conference Committee would like to invite you to submit an abstract to present at its 39th Annual Conference taking place September 26-28, 2023 in Anaheim, California. This year, the planning committee has identified the need to cover a wide range of topics that will appeal to both the novice and expert neonatal nurse. As a result, we have provided a list of topics and areas of interest in order to make the application selection process less cumbersome and more diverse to better meet the educational needs of the conference attendees. The list below is not inclusive and is only meant to serve as a guide when submitting your abstract. We encourage you to suggest your own ideas, present your own research findings, or share your knowledge on a topic of interest. Please keep in mind that application submissions should focus on nursing, be state-of-the-art, evidence-based and challenge neonatal nurses at all levels of expertise.
The 2023 2nd Call for Abstracts will open in early April.
