Nursing Scholarship Session: July 14

The Multiple Dimensions of Scholarship and Inquiry

July 14, 2023 | 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.

Health Education Building, Room G205

Event Description

DNP students will be given the opportunity to present a formal, oral presentation of their final master's or doctoral work. Our goal at KU is to develop the competency of oral dissemination, which is being built into our curriculum. We know that many of our surrounding schools also send students to conferences as part of the dissemination process. We hope this provides a venue for the summer graduate or student who finished their DNP project or other doctoral work in the summer at a venue closer to home.

APRN/RN: The University of Kansas Medical Center Area Health Education Center East is approved as a provider of CNE by the Kansas State Board of Nursing. This course offering is approved for 4-5 contact hours applicable for APRN or RN relicensure, Kansas State Board of Nursing provider number: LT0056-0749. Mary Beth Warren, MS, RN, Coordinator. Final determination of number of contact hours pending review.

Continuing education credit will be awarded based upon documented attendance, completion of evaluation and payment of applicable registration fee.

We also seek abstracts from graduate nursing students, faculty, and practicing nurses.
