Dr. Benner is a professor emerita at the University of California School of Nursing. She is a noted nursing educator and author of From Novice to Expert: Excellence and Power in Nursing Practice, which has been translated into twelve languages. She has directed over 50 doctoral dissertations. She pioneered the use of Interpretive Phenomenology in Nursing. She is the director of this Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching National Nursing Education Study, Educating Nurses: A Call for Radical Transformation which is the first such study in forty years. Additionally, she collaborated with the Carnegie Preparation for the Professions studies of clergy, engineering, law, and medicine.

Patricia Hooper Kyriakidis, RN, PhD
Dr. Kyriakidis, with Drs. Patricia Benner and Tom Ahrens, has worked to radically transform the education of clinicians and students, their ability to clinical thinking and reason, and their preparation to become practice-ready. To prepare clinicians to become practice-ready, the learner must first gain the necessary knowledge, but as importantly, must then be challenged in an unprompted way to notice what is clinically relevant, make sense of all information, recognize the problem, and then problem-solve. Further, Dr. Kyriakidis has led the development of analytics that provide individualized and specific insights to educators about each learner’s clinical thinking, reasoning, and judgment. The analytics revolutionize an educator’s understanding about what and how to better educate learners. With patient safety and quality patient care as the highest concerns of Nursing Leaders, preparing practice-ready nurses is the major challenge of the future.

Poster presenters should be present at their poster display for at least a portion of assigned poster presentation times to allow colleagues to ask questions. Exact times are subject to the final program and will be communicated to presenters.
The abstract is limited to 350 words, excluding the title. Abstracts should align with the conference theme (Collaborating, Leading, and Educating), and should fit into one of the following categories: Quality Improvement, Research, or Best Practice/Innovation. Authors should submit their work within the category and theme that they feel best fits.

Leading - inspiring and motivating nurses and other health care providers to seek unexpected and remarkable results within nursing education (e.g. influence strategies; leadership roles, skills or opportunities)

Will projects/research in progress be accepted?
When deciding if you are going to submit your work, it is important to review all scoring criteria to ensure you can answer all of the criteria. Research submissions must be original research with completed results at the time of submission. Quality improvement and best practice/innovative practice submissions need to have been implemented.
The components of the abstract for each category are listed below to help presenters ensure they have included all required information based on scoring criteria. Presenters are encouraged to write the abstract in a word processing file (e.g. MS Word) and then cut and paste the appropriate sections into the abstract system. Please be sure to verify that special characters used are pasted correctly.
The final abstract (body of abstract) must be no more than 350 words (excluding the title and authors’ names/institutions). Please check the word count of your abstract in a word processing program prior to cutting and pasting the abstract into the online submission form. The abstract title should clearly indicate the nature of the subject. Acronyms should not be used in the title and should be written out on first mention. Do not include any identifying information in the abstract, such as the institution of the presenters or the institution where the project took place.
Abstracts are reviewed for completion of requested information according to category. Please review the criteria below for each category to ensure your abstract aligns with the category you are submitting to.

Abstract submission, review, and acceptance:
Abstracts must be submitted via the electronic abstract management system by the requested deadline. A blind review of the abstract is directed by the PNEG Abstract Review Committee and abstracts may be selected for an oral session or poster presentation. The abstract will be evaluated for the completion of requested information and adherence to all instructions. If an abstract does not adhere to the stated criteria, it will not be reviewed. Notice of the outcome of review will be sent early May, 2019.
