The State of the Science Congress on Nursing Research will be held in-person at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC from September 15-17, 2022. No virtual option will be offered. Asynchronous, on-demand content will be available after the event for purchase.

The Academy will take additional measures to protect the health and safety of the participants at the State of the Science Congress being held September 15 - 17, 2022 at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC. Specifically, we will require all registered attendees and speakers to be fully vaccinated, as outlined by the CDC, to participate in-person at the conference. For individuals who are unable to be vaccinated due to medical or religious reasons, proof of a negative test within 72 hours prior to arriving on-site at the event will be required. In-person attendees will be required to upload their vaccination card or negative test through a secure portal. Additionally, attendees will be required to execute a liability waiver related to potential exposure.

The Academy continues to monitor and adjust our health and safety measures as the course of the pandemic unfolds. The Academy requests that all attendees and guests are familiar with and agree to uphold the public safety measures laid out by the District of Columbia’s Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on masking, social distancing, travel, international travel, and testing. While masks are not currently required in DC, the Academy does encourage participants to wear them indoors. Please note that in-person attendees who are traveling internationally to the United States for the event must refer to and adhere to their own country’s guidance on COVID-19 protocols in relation to U.S. based travel and entry and will be required to show their proof of vaccination card onsite at the conference upon check-in at registration in order to participate in the conference since the CLEAR Health Pass does not have the ability to verify international vaccine cards.
