Nursing Research on the Green (NROTG) FAQs
Submitting an Abstract for Poster and Research Corner Presentations
What are the professional requirements for authors who submit abstracts?
At least one author should be a Registered Nurse (RN) and must complete a Conflict of Interest (COI) form. For Poster abstract submissions, one RN author must be present at each poster session. For Research Corner submissions, presenters must be RNs. All poster and Research Corner presenters MUST register for NROTG.
NOTE: All submitted abstracts will be accepted for Poster presentation. Deadline for Abstract submissions is April 10, 2023 @ 11:59 pm.
Does the presenting author have to be a co-author on the poster abstract?
Yes. Only one author (RN) listed on the abstract is required to present at a poster session. If your poster has several RN authors, a poster presenting time may be assigned among your RN authors.
Where should I park my vehicle?
There is limited event parking that will be reserved for presenters. Any remaining spots will be assigned as available through registration preference. Otherwise, attendees will be welcome to park in Gundersen Health System Employee Parking Lot F (see map) located near the ICE (Integrated Center for Education) House. There is a walking path from there to the event space. Due to the limited parking, carpooling is encouraged.
What dress code is appropriate?
Required dress code is business casual or professional dress. No scrubs or denim.
What poster size is required for printing? What time should I bring my poster for set-up on the day of the conference?
The dimensions of your poster should be 36” height by 48” width to fit the poster display stands that are provided to presenters. Please bring your own push pins. Poster set-up time is from 7:00 - 7:45 a.m. on the day of the conference. Your assigned poster number will be given to you at the registration desk. Poster take-down time is 11:30 - 12:00 p.m. on the day of the conference.
I submitted an abstract for Poster presentation but did not receive a reply. How do I know if my abstract was accepted?
All abstracts submitted for Poster presentations are accepted and only the submitting author will receive an automated email notification after your abstract was submitted. If you did not receive an “abstract submitted” notification, please check your junk/spam mailbox or contact email@example.com.
What is Research Corner and how do I request that my abstract be considered for presentation?
Research Corner is a podium presentation and is preferentially reserved for showcasing completed projects of post-licensure students and registered nurses.
