The UGONSA National Professional Conference and Scientific Update is a classic event where scholars, researchers and administrators in the nursing profession gather to exhibit and review scientific works and underlying theories of nursing practice for the purpose of improving on medico-nursing knowledge and skills, for enhanced qualitative client care.

Most universities and health institutions require that their lecturers, higher degree students and clinical staff show evidence of participation and presentation of their works at professional conferences as a caveat for promotion, graduation, or professional distinction. The evidence could be in various forms:

·         Evidence that the abstract submitted was accepted for presentation at the conference through a letter that conveys such.

·         Showing that their work(s) is/are listed among the items in the book of abstracts of the conference.

·         A release letter addressed to the institution where the presenter works indicating that his/her work was accepted for presentation at the conference and asking for release of such person(s) to attend the conference and make the presentation.

·         Certificate of Presentation of the work issued to the presenter at the end of the conference.

Does UGONSA National Professional Conference & Scientific Update Meet the University/Health Institutions’ Standards and Requirements to Help Nurses Excel in Academia and Clinical Practice?

Yes! UGONSA makes a call for submission of abstracts for the next Professional Conference & Scientific Update at the completion of every conference. The Abstract Review Committee, upon completion of review of submitted abstracts, makes recommendations to the National Leadership of UGONSA for acceptance or rejection of works.  Notification regarding acceptance or rejection of abstracts is sent to the submitters. The authors whose works were accepted for presentation are issued with a letter of acceptance of their abstracts for presentation at UGONSA conference. Their works are then published in the book of abstracts. Thereafter, applications for their release to attend the conference, and present their papers, are made to the Heads of their institutions, Vice Chancellors, Provosts, deans, etc. At the end of the conference, the authors that made presentations are issued with certificates of presentation by UGONSA which they can submit with the book of abstracts to their institution as proof of participation and presentation at the conference.

How Can I Confirm That UGONSA National Professional Conferences & Scientific Updates Can Offer These Benefits and Opportunities?

Kindly submit your abstract or attend the upcoming 20th conference to confirm for yourself, as the proof of the pudding lies in the eating. Deadline for abstract submission for the upcoming conference has been extended to May 31, 2022. The 20th National Professional Conference & Scientific Update – Abakaliki, 2022 shall hold from Monday 11th to Saturday 16th July 2022 at Conference Centre of Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

After attending, for sure you shall be the first to urge nurses in academia, those with prospects of being in the academia and those that wish to distinguish themselves in clinical practice to submit their abstracts when next UGONSA calls for submission of abstracts for its National Professional Conference & Scientific Update.
