Discover NERC

Meet and network with more than 400 nurses at the Nursing Education Research Conference (NERC). NERC provides nursing administrators, faculty, students, researchers, and leaders in the nursing profession with the opportunity to learn more about the science of nursing education.

NERC will focus on research that promotes evidence-based teaching practices with the potential to transform nursing education. Oral and poster presentations, educational workshop sessions, and plenary presentations will provide evidence to enhance the scholarship of teaching and link educational outcomes to student learning.

  • Translate research outcomes into educational practice and policy.
