2021 Attendee Reflections

“By attending this symposium, I am reminded of the important of nursing presence in the area of research and evidence based practice. The nursing fellows who presented today were inspiring and I believe motivated many to examine their home units for potential areas of improvement.”
“Every new research idea or proposal is valid and applicable to our practice, profession and ultimately to our patients. As long as there is a passion for an area of research, there will be a way to conduct the research, compile findings and disseminate new knowledge from the ‘bench to the bedside’.”
“Amazing research done by all. Always interesting and this conference just has a great fun way about it.”
“Excellent conference, engaging format even on Zoom. All moderators were articulate and
interesting to listen to.”
