After three years, and with excitement, we are pleased to announce that Synapse Nursing Symposium is back!
Save the Date for Wednesday, June 7th, 2023.
During the time away from the symposium, St. Lawrence College has created the stand-alone nursing degree and formed the School of Nursing, encompassing both the Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Practical Nursing programs. For the first time, and under leadership of Laralea Stalkie, the Associate Dean of the School of Nursing, this conference will bring together both programs to collaborate and explore nursing scholarship and innovation through a bigger lens. With a fresh look, the planning committee is presenting the symposium theme of Building Back: Envisioning the Future of Nursing.
The symposium will be discussing how the nursing profession is moving forward in a post COVID health care system. Diving into how nurses, faculty and students are overcoming challenges using innovative strategies looking at building resilience and self-care, and how to promote diverse and strong workforce that can respond more effectively to patients
The tricampus BScN research/scholarship committee and the 2023 Synapse planning committee invite all members of the school of nursing; faculty, students community partners and alumni, to participate in this conference.
We are now accepting abstract submissions for oral or poster presentation at the conference. We welcome a variety of research and scholarly activities. You can submit your abstract online via our website. The deadline for submission is April 12th, 2023. Decisions will be sent out by May 3rd, 2023. Submission Instructions will be found on the web-based submission form.
We are looking forward to hosting an exciting and informative event at the Kingston Event and Meeting Facilities as we welcome you back to the Synapse Nursing Symposium 2023.
