All abstracts accepted will be recognized in the Symposium brochure and the Illinois ENA website.  Authors/presenters of abstracts accepted will be required to be present at the poster session at the Illinois ENA Spring Symposium. Four winners will be selected to present a 10-15-minute presentation for the EBP Breakout Session on April 20, 2018. Abstracts submitted by any EBP Committee members are not eligible for awards. Each abstract (not authors) accepted for the poster session will be awarded a stipend.
