Call for Posters (with abstract)

Posted 14 days ago

Dear members,

We are excited to offer our members the opportunity to present their research and project posters virtually this year at our Annual Conference. We hope this provides a venue for students to disseminate their work and for our practitioners, educators, and others to let us know about the great work you are doing! While there is no award for your poster being chosen, we hope it will provide needed exposure.  Please see below for details.

General Information:

  • Applicant must be an active INPS member (Regular, Student, Joint or Associate).
  • An abstract of 250+/- words should be submitted with the poster for the committee to review.
  • The poster is a scholarly synopsis of a nurse practitioner, or student-developed and led project and can include quality, practice, outcomes, systems, community, or process improvement projects or research projects.
  • A curriculum vitae (CV) of the submitting author should be provided, as well as emails of all co-authors.
  • Please have your abstract, CV, and Poster in PowerPoint format submitted no later than 9/15/24 to Julie K. Shaw.

General format for posters:

    • Include the poster title, author(s) name, and the institution where the work was completed, centered at the top of the poster.
    • Present your poster sections in a methodical sequence as outlined below so that others can follow your project's or research's logic. A good method is setting up your poster in a column format so that individuals interested can read your poster, first vertical, then top to bottom, and then left to right. See the options for templates below.

    • General format for abstracts:
      • Problem
      • Background, needs assessment or root cause analysis
      • Methods or project
      • Results or outcomes including barriers and alterations
      • Discussion/Implication for future practice
      • References
      • Use a type size that can be read easily.  The title should be larger than the rest of the text. Select a legible font such as Times New Roman, Arial, or Helvetica. The poster pixel size will be 768 x 1366. The posters will be displayed on digital screens larger than 40 inches. Please keep this in mind while sizing and spacing your text and images.
      • Keep text to a minimum, emphasize graphics, and make sure every item in your poster is necessary.  Discussions can be held virtually.
      • Space your information proportionally: divide your poster either horizontally or vertically into three or four sections and place your materials within those spaces.
      • Use a pixel calculator to better determine the size of your poster.
      • If you are inserting a PDF or graph, assure you try and “stretch” the size to assure it holds its clarity when enlarged.
      • Limit of one poster per presenter (multiple poster abstracts can be submitted, however a maximum of one can be accepted per presenter)

Here are more links to some options, though you may already have yours completed or have templates of your own!

The next two link you to templates provided by Rutgers, so please remove their identifying content:

Deadline to submit is 9/15/24 to Julie K. Shaw.
