Huffman Splane Emerging Nurse Scholars Forum 2018
October 9 - October 10
The Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing Huffman Splane Emerging Scholars Forum supports early career development and international networking of emerging nursing scholars who are embarking on a research focused career. The Huffman Splane Emerging Nurse Scholars Forum is supported by a generous endowment from Dr. Verna Huffman Splane, a pioneer in nursing in Canada who held a deep conviction that nurses should be taught that they are part of a global profession. Bloomberg Nursing is widely recognized as a research-intensive environment that promotes education and scholarship in nursing.
Selected through a peer review application process, participants will be invited to present their doctoral/postdoctoral research to peers and faculty. Preference will be given to applicants whose research and academic interests focus on public health (the health of individuals, groups or populations), health systems and/or improvement of care/outcomes.
Participants will have the opportunity to meet with nurse researchers who have established successful careers in nursing science. During the Forum, Bloomberg faculty will lead discussion sessions and speak on the successful development of an academic career.
Applications are invited from Canadian, American and international Registered Nurses or Nurse Practitioners who are near completion or have recently completed a PhD in nursing (completed on or after June 2017); or who currently hold or have completed a post-doctoral fellowship within the past year.
Please consider posting the flyer.
