NICHE Announces “From Practice to Publication”
Session for 2015 Annual Conference 

NEW YORK – March 4, 2015 – Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) announces plans for a ”From Practice to Publication” session at the 2015 Annual NICHE Conference, April 15, 2015, Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Maureen Shawn Kennedy, MA, RN, FAAN, editor-in-chief, American Journal of Nursing, will conduct the session for those interested in publishing articles based on their geriatric research and quality improvement initiatives.

As nurses engage in evidence-based practice, clinical research and quality improvement projects, sharing their work with the broader nursing and healthcare communities becomes both an opportunity and professional responsibility. The session will cover some basics to consider including getting started on the process of writing, guidelines, selecting a journal, what to expect from review/editing and key elements.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss key elements of an acceptable paper.
  2. Identify processes to follow before submitting.
  3. Describe ways to start the creative process.

Two research symposiums are scheduled for Friday, April 17 at the conference: “Understanding & Using Evidence to Address Clinical Problems” and “How to Secure Funding and Disseminate/Publish Results.” The ”From Practice to Publication” session will be instrumental in further helping new research reach the media.

More than 850 nurses and other healthcare professionals from over 300 hospitals and healthcare organizations worldwide will meet in Lake Buena Vista, Florida for the 2015 Annual NICHE Conference, April 1417, 2015. The theme of this year’s conference at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort is “Innovation Through Leadership.”

Attendees at the annual NICHE conferences share evidence-based innovations and research. NICHE supports hospitals and other healthcare organizations in meeting one of the most critical challenges of our times: quality care of older adults. For complete conference information and to register, visit
