Research Summit

Since 2005, NANN's Research Summit has enabled neonatal nurses currently engaged in research or evidence-based practice projects to present their research or projects to an audience of their peers. Before the pandemic, the Research Summit was typically held in Scottsdale, Arizona. Now, NANN hosts the summit in conjunction with its annual conference.

The intimate summit creates a unique environment for these researchers to share ideas, gather feedback, build confidence, and empower one another. Each 20-minute presentation in this one-day program provides a professional development opportunity. From the cutting-edge keynote presentations to networking with peers and leaders in the field, the summit experience is unparalleled.

Some research themes presented in the past few years includes AKI, neonatal pain, kangaroo care, nurse stress, developmental care, golden hour, pediatric genetics, respiratory care, stress, and many more!

Our 2024 Research Summit will take place September 16th, 2024, in Orlando, Florida.

Mentors and participants of the 2023 Research Summit

In September of 2023, the 18th annual Research Summit took place in Anaheim, California, in conjunction with the Annual Conference.

The Summit was such an empowering and rewarding experience. I feel so honored to have been able to participate and energized to take my nursing career to the next level! After I left the summit, I applied for a PhD program in Nursing Research! Thank you so much for expanding my horizons and seeing what is possible!”
