2021 – March 17-24, Nursing Theory Week – Virtual

Conference Website
VNTW Evaluation Summary

Location: Virtual
Date: March 17-24, 2021
Co-hosts: Case Western Reserve University Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing and the University of Tennessee at Memphis School of Nursing

Conference Procedures: There were three Keynote Sessions, with all of the breakout sessions scheduled throughout the week. There were two exciting changes from the traditional in-person format:

  1. Each breakout session will be 30 minutes long (not 20) which will give each presenter a bit more time to present and engage the audience in discussion; and
  2. Every session will be an individually scheduled session–that is, people won’t be presenting in a concurrent session (and competing with another presenter).

With this format, every person attending the Virtual Nursing Theory Week 2021 will have the opportunity to hear every single presenter.
