TANA’s 86th Annual Meeting Poster Session Information

Final Cropped


You are invited to submit a poster that advances scientific and clinical understanding and presents or advances new ideas on any topic in the entire spectrum of the art and science of Nurse Anesthesia.


TANA is sponsoring a dissemination and discussion of the scholarly work of SRNAs, CRNAs and anesthesia Faculty in the state of Tennessee as part of the TANA 86th Annual Meeting on October 6-8, 2023.


Posters will be presented during informal exhibition sessions to allow authors to exhibit and discuss their work in progress or completed work. SRNAs are especially encouraged to submit posters for presentation. This session is designed to foster a collegial environment where CRNAs, SRNAs, and Faculty can discuss their research, as well as make or renew relationships to help foster collaboration.


General Requirements 
Posters must be original work - group work is acceptable. There must be an SRNA, CRNA, or anesthesia Faculty member within the state of Tennessee included on the poster. The title of your poster should be short to attract attention.


Authors are encouraged to attend with their poster during the presentation.

SRNAs: Poster size must meet your school requirements, unless you are one of the first ten submissions in a PDF or PPT format.
CRNAs: 36 x 48 inches

Your abstract must have your name, school, and email listed at the top left of the first page. Please do not use bullets; complete sentences are required. If you use acronyms, they must be defined with first use. A disclosure statement is, also, required. Limited to one page maximum, single spaced. Abstracts will be published in a symposium presentation booklet (this does not qualify as professional publication of an abstract). Abstracts must be submitted by September 10, 2023, to be included in the booklet. Abstracts submitted after this date will not be printed.
