Have you always wanted to present at a professional conference, but were too nervous because you lacked the experience to submit an abstract? Do you feel that with some guidance, mentoring, and support you would be ready for next year’s program? Or perhaps this sounds like a fellow nurse you may know. Well, now is the time! Introducing new dimension of TRENDS that is uniquely designed to develop and advance aspiring nurses:

*** SePA Star Search ***

Six abstracts will be selected to participate in this special competition taking place during a lunchtime session on the last day of the TRENDS conference - Friday, October 9th from 12:15 PM to 1:30 PM. Each participant will have just 10 minutes to provide a brief presentation on the topic of their choice found among The ABC's of Synergy CERPS. Members of the TRENDS planning committee will judge the presentations and the top two to three participants who receive the highest scores will be invited back to present a 60-minute concurrent session at the 2016 TRENDS conference. The winners will also receive a complimentary 2016 TRENDS registration fee for their lecture day, complimentary lunch on their lecture day, and one-on-one mentoring from a member of the TRENDS planning committee to best prepare them for their début next year.

DEADLINE for Submission:  August 11, 2015

Interested participants are asked to submit a 250-word or less abstract of their topic in a word document, single-spaced, in Times New Roman size 12 font. Submissions must include at least one learning objective and three references according to APA, 6th edition. To assist in blinding the abstracts, participants are asked NOT to include any personal information on the initial abstract page. Instead, include all personal information on the consecutive page which should include the following: Name and Credentials, Employer Name, Position and Title, Preferred Email Address, Home Address, Cell Number, and Title of your Presentation.

Submissions and any questions regarding this unique opportunity should be emailed to with the subject line SePA Star Search. All participants will be notified of selection via email by August 25, 2015. Spread the word!
