Nursing Research & Evidence-Based Practice Conference

**Announcement: The Research Conference is Going Virtual!**

We are excited to announce that FNA's 6th Annual Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice Conference is going virtual this year! Thank you to everyone who provided feedback to help us make this decision.

Although we all love to have face-to-face events for the networking and engagement opportunities they provide, we are still seeing concern around the advisability of an in-person event at this time. We are optimistic that the virtual experience will be engaging and still provide those important networking opportunities. We will keep you updated with more details in the coming weeks including information about registration.

Exciting Benefits to Taking this Event Virtual:

  • Virtual allows more participants to join from across the state without the barriers associated with travel costs.
  • Live Q&A sessions with speakers and poster presenters will allow one-on-one engagement opportunities.
  • Content from the conference will be accessible from any device at any time! Recordings and posters will be available for viewing after the live conference.

About the Conference

The purpose of this conference is to promote communication and dissemination of nursing research and evidence-based practice improvement projects that are being conducted in diverse academic, clinical, and/or community settings throughout Florida. The conference is coordinated by the Nursing Research Special Interest Group and sponsored by the Florida Nurses Foundation.

The Florida Nurses Association is proud to promote the practice of Nursing Research and the work of all levels of nurse researchers. Our goal is to create a forum where experienced researchers can serve as role models and mentors, and potential and novice researchers can hone their skills and receive mentoring and support from their more seasoned colleagues.

The Nursing Research Conference is an interactive conference that continues to evolve and we invite you to become a part of its growth and development. We also encourage interested novice nurses to attend this conference as an introduction to nursing research so that they can have first-hand knowledge of how research and evidence-based inquiry can make a difference to nursing practice and patient care. We look forward to seeing returning attendees as well as many new faces at the conference this year.
