Research Spotlight: 2021 NANN Research Summit Faculty and Participants

The NANN Research Summit brings nurses together to share their projects—research, quality improvement, and evidence-based practice—in a supportive and stimulating environment.

This year's 16th annual NANN Research Summit was made possible by an educational grant from Mead Johnson Nutrition. The event was held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions on March 16, 2021. Eleven researchers were selected to present their research or evidence-based practice project to an audience of their peers and faculty.
