Abstract Submission

Every day, nurses ask critical questions that can change a patient’s outcome and influence practice guidelines. Share your experience and findings through an abstract submission for the APGNN annual meeting! Abstracts can highlight Quality Improvement (QI), Evidence-Based Practice (EBP), or clinical research. Abstracts are blindly reviewed and scored through the APGNN and NASPGHAN Research Committees. Those with the highest score(s) receive Poster of Distinction status for which the recipient (s) will receive $1000 plus the ability to present at the conference. 

The abstract submission site is now OPEN!

Please note, you may need to create a login to submit your abstract. This is NOT your NASPGHAN or APGNN login information. 



Curious about research but don’t know where to start?

The Clinical Inquiry Committee has created many resources to help answer your questions!
