In April of 2022, the 17th Annual Research Summit was held virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Carrying on the tradition of including mentors in the program, the 2022 Summit had 3 nurse researchers who provided mentorship to encourage participants in their continued research and publication of their work. These leaders were Amy D'Agata, PhD RN, Christine Fortney, PhD RN, and Jenny Quinn, PHD NNP-BC.

Dr. Deb Brandon, CCNS FAAN PhD RN, kicked off the Research Summit with her presentation on writing for publication. Topics of presentations from the participants included human milk as a topical application for diaper dermatitis, promoting safe sleep modeling ahead of discharge, and utilizing technology during NICU rounds to increase parent engagement.

NANN would like to thank all presenters, mentors, and the Research Committee for the work they put in and our sponsor Mead Johnson for making this Summit possible.
