Updated nomination criteria

Schools can now nominate currently enrolled students or recently graduated students.

  • Enrolled as a current student at the time of nomination, but not required to be a student at the time of the event.
  • A recently graduated student is defined as a student who has graduated in the past six months.

During congress, Sigma is offering an opportunity for nursing students to present their research, literature review, or evidence-based project as part of the Rising Stars of Research and Scholarship invited student posters. We hope this offers an opportunity to elevate the nursing profession by showcasing the scholarly contributions of students.

Schools can nominate no more than three (3) students from each campus as program representatives. Each campus may send undergraduate students, master’s degree students, and/or doctoral students. Students should meet the following requirements:

  • Enrolled as a current student at the time of nomination, but not required to be a student at the time of the event; or a recently graduated student (graduated in the past six months).
  • Nominated by a school representative based on additional criteria determined by the school; nomination means automatic acceptance for the student as a poster presenter during the event.
