  • 60-minute Presentation Proposals

    • Proposals include accurate and complete information.
    • Content is current, evidence-based and suitable for a 60-minute presentation duration.
    • The presentation does not promote personal interest in a service, book or product.
    • The presenter’s experience indicates expertise in the subject area.
    • The backgrounds of the conference presenters (as a group) are diverse.

    Submission Guidelines and Process

    Final selections will be consistent with the identified educational needs, presentation ethics and objectives of the conference.

    A separate submission must be completed for each 60-minute proposal. Applicants are allowed up to four separate submissions. Only one co-presenter is allowed for 60-minute sessions.

    The proposal submission period closed on Monday, April 15, 2019, at 5 p.m. CT.

    If you have any questions, please contact Christina Karas at or 512-442-4262 ext. 5228.

  • Rapid Fire (20-minute) and Poster Presentation Proposals

    Rapid Fire (20-minute) presentations for the 2020 AANP National Conference are meant to deliver quick, high-quality content and will be scheduled as standalone presentations at different times throughout the conference. Rapid Fire presentations replaced podium presentations in 2017.

    Rapid Fire presentations include a 15-minute lecture with a five-minute question-and-answer session.

    AANP will schedule three separate poster sessions, one each day when the Exhibit Hall is open.

    • Proposals should note your area of interest, which can include novel clinical or education interventions, innovative models of care, emerging health conditions, evolving leadership and policy issues, original research findings and resourceful outcome measures.
    • Final selections will be based on the quality and clarity of the abstract and relevance to the contemporary NP practice environment.
    • Presenters must be available to speak on any of the conference dates between Tuesday, June 23, 2020, and Sunday, June 28, 2020.

    Appropriate Content

    • Completed research papers concerning all facets of NP practice (in-progress reports will be considered for poster presentations only)
    • Brief updates regarding clinical innovations and practice issues relevant to NPs (to allow coverage within a Rapid Fire or poster presentation)

    The submission period closed on August 12, 2019, at 5 p.m. CT.

    If you have any questions or submission problems, please contact Debbie Jones at or 512-442-4262 ext. 5222.
