Primary authors must be ONS members. Primary authors must be either a registered nurse, a licensed healthcare professional from another discipline (physician, pharmacist, physical therapist, etc.), or a doctorally prepared individual.

Authors (including students) or institutions cannot submit more than two abstracts on the same topic or from the same topic. If data are from a multi-site study, each site may submit one abstract.

For abstracts with more than one author, the primary author is considered the contact person.
