Student Poster Judging Information

Best Poster Awards:

Abstracts will be rated according to the criteria listed in the call for student posters addition to the student’s role. Abstracts with the highest initial review rating will then be selected for on-site judging and will be judged according to the scientific criteria listed above, plus overall poster appearance. It is suggested that each student refer to a published article on poster preparation or refer to the guidelines provided in your poster acceptance notification letter. Each student level of posters, BSN, MSN, DNP, and PhD will be judged separately. For PhD student entries, the first place award will be designated for a research project. For DNP student entries, the first place award will be designated for an evidence based project. Award winners will be announced during the Awards Ceremony at the Business Meeting on Saturday, April 8th.

A “logistics” letter will be sent closer to the Conference letting you know your poster number, exhibit hall layout, and when you need to have your poster set-up and taken down by.

NOTE:  Student Posters sessions are not eligible for CE credits.
