through the application of well-documented research and evaluation methodologies.
The sum of all the work is captured and presented in an abstract and poster. The abstract must
communicate effectively the theoretical and research-based framework for the professional
development nursing plan and recommendation to address the phenomenon, along with the
findings, results and/or educational materials in a professional manner to be presented to
