40th Annual Conference Call for Abstracts

The National Assocation of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) is the premier organization that shapes neonatal nursing through excellence in practice, education, research, and professional development. The purpose of this conference is to offer comprehensive educational and networking opportunities for neonatal nurses, advanced practitioners, and other interprofessional providers across the spectrum of neonatal care. Sessions represent state-of-the-art advances in neonatal care, leadership, advocacy, and research.

The Annual Conference Committee would like to invite you to submit an abstract to present at the 40th Annual Conference taking place September 18 – 20 in Orlando, Florida.

NANN holds three calls for abstracts throughout the year to acquire content to be included in the Annual Conference program. The First Call for Abstracts, the NANN & VON Case of the Year, and the Second Call for Poster Abstracts. See the guidelines for each call below and select the call that works best for your content!
