*Eligibility note – students who finish a dissertation (or EBP) project after the last MNRS conference in March 2018 are still eligible to submit a student poster even if they have graduated.

Invitation to Participate

Each school will determine and use its own procedure to select up to three (3) students to participate in each of the following educational programs:


        • Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN)
        • Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) or Master’s in Nursing (MN)

        • Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Science (PhD)
We understand that many institutions have an internal review of student abstracts for the Student Posters. You are welcome to solicit for abstracts to review internally to determine which abstracts will be selected by your school and then inform your students once the official Call is sent by MNRS.
In order for MNRS to update you regarding your student submissions, Deans must provide a list of students selected for poster sessions to the MNRS Executive Office by Wednesday, October 10, 2018.  

Abstract Criteria
Students will be required to show the following during the submission process:
The Abstract Submission link will be open on Friday, September 28 and all participating Deans will receive an abstract submission link to share with their selected students.  All student poster abstracts must be submitted by Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
MNRS asks that you encourage students not selected to submit for the Student Poster to submit for a Competitive Abstract. We are accepting submissions for Competitive Abstracts through September 14, 2018. Click here for more information about the Call for Competitive Abstracts.
** Students who submit for the Competitive Abstracts are not eligible to submit for a Student Poster.
