Several students and faculty from the UW-Eau Claire College of Nursing and Health Sciences recently attended the 43rd Annual Research Conference, sponsored by the Midwest Nursing Research Society. The event was March 27-30, 2019 in Kansas City, Missouri. The theme for the 2019 conference was “Nursing Research at the Forefront of Healthcare Crises”.
At the conference the nursing students attended many symposiums about different nursing research topics including health promoting behaviors, family health, pediatrics, and public health. They talked to different universities around the Midwest about graduate options and networked with graduate students, nursing faculty, and nursing researchers around the region. Many people were interested about the students' research topics during the poster session and the students were excited to educate them on their projects. The students would like to thank the College of Nursing and Health Sciences for mentoring and providing research opportunities to be an active member of the nursing profession as well as the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs for funding to attend the conference.
