Scholarly Showcase

Call for Abstracts

CNSA Scholarly Showcase is announcing a Call for Abstracts for the 2017 Canadian Nursing Students’ Association (CNSA) National Conference in Winnipeg, MB from January 25-28, 2017. Abstracts should be in relation to the 2017 National Conference titled, “Celebrating Diversity- breaking barriers through the exploration of cultural safety.” The Scholarly Showcase is an annual event at the CNSA National Conference that gives nursing students the opportunity to display and present projects and research that they have been working on. We believe that as future nurses and healthcare professionals, we must foster an environment that promotes interprofessional collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Research is a crucial part of health care, and especially in nursing. It ensures that as health care professionals, we are providing the best and safest care possible to our clients and communities based on evidence and best practices. We encourage all nursing students to reach out to their faculty and colleagues to explore the world of research and to contribute to nursing’s specialized body of knowledge.
