It is not mandatory that the first author be pre-registered and present; the presenter may be any of the contributing authors or a colleague.


Author associated with an abstract must register for the conference and are responsible for all travel expenses (airfare, hotel, etc.) associated with presenting at the meeting. The conference registration is separate from the abstract submission. Abstracts will be removed from the conference if author(s) are not registered for the conference by May 22, 2020. If a presenter(s) withdraws from the conference the poster submission will be removed.

Note our Faculty Program: We recognize the important role of academic faculty in preparing the next generation of NP leaders, and as a show of support, we offer one free conference registration per 24-month period to full-time faculty of NP academic programs. A limited number of seats are put aside at each conference for faculty taking advantage of this NPACE Perk.


All abstracts will be reviewed and selected based on criteria requirements by an NPACE nurse planner. This will ensure adherence to ANCC Commission on Accreditation CE provider guidelines.


Upon acceptance of an abstract, presenters will receive a presenter agreement with dates and guidelines. This agreement will need to be signed and returned to NPACE within one week of receipt of email notification of poster acceptance. Failure to return agreement will result in removal of the abstract from the presentation.


Upon acceptance of an abstract, presenters will receive information pertaining to the NPACE ePoster learning toolbox. These ePosters are web-based allowing presenters to quickly and easily build a virtual ePoster using stacks of interactive blocks containing vital information including text, graphics, links to video and other websites. Presenter will be also asked to provide 5 multiple choice questions/answers for NPACE to create a google quiz that will be incorporated into your ePoster. This will allow learners to earn contacts hours for viewing the ePoster and completing the online quiz.  By utilizing this ePoster system, NPACE will house your poster in its online library for other medical professions to view in the future.
