2022 Call for Abstracts
***Submission Deadline: March 30 at 11:59pm Central***

The International Nurses Society on Addictions (IntNSA) invites you to submit an abstract for a symposium, oral presentation and/or poster session at the Annual Educational Conference!
IntNSA Annual Educational Conference

Path to the New Normal:
Global Directions in Addictions Nursing
Hyatt Regency Calgary
Alberta, Canada
October 26-29, 2022

Regardless of your area of specialty or practice setting, if you attend only one conference this year, we hope that you will join us at IntNSA’s Annual Educational Conference. It is expected that this year’s IntNSA conference will attract the greatest number of participants ever, with plenary and concurrent sessions, numerous sponsors and exhibits, and a silent auction to help support the Foundation of Addictions Nursing (FAN). Continuing education credits in nursing are available. When you register, if you are not already a member of IntNSA, please consider joining as members to receive a discounted conference registration rate. Whether this is your first IntNSA conference, or you have been attending every year, consider bringing a colleague to share in the scientific knowledge and information about evidence based practice in addictions, as well as the fellowship that defines International Nurses Society on Addictions conferences.

The conference will also have a virtual option to attend most of the conference as well as present your poster for those who will not be able to attend in person.
