The purpose of this assignment is to create a poster that will present the visual and graphic presentation of the capstone project.

This assignment is due in week seven and must be presented by the student.

Create your poster per guidance and approval from your capstone course faculty (template provided above). Follow the poster template as outlined and review the recommended resources in creating your poster.

What goals should you keep in mind to construct a poster?

  • Clarity of content. Decide on a small number of key points that you want your viewers to take away from your presentation, and articulate those ideas clearly and concisely.
  • Visual interest and accessibility. The viewers should notice and take interest in your poster so that they will pause to learn more about your project, and you will need the poster’s design to present your research in a way that is easy for those viewers to make easy sense of it.

From the capstone project, students will create an effective poster with the following information:

Title: Project Title

Authors: Your name, faculty advisor’s name


Purpose or Aims of the Study


Expected Results/Outcomes

Anticipated Conclusions

Potential Implications to Practice

are read from leO to right; organize the content
with this in mind. When possible, lead the viewer

Most professional meeting agendas set aside speciYc
times for poster presentations. Many organizations o3er

A networking oppo^unity
Poster presentations are excellent oppo^unities not
just to showcase your work but also to network with
colleagues who have similar interests. E3ective pre- senters
introduce themselves to aWendees and “walk”
them through their poster, oOen adding information
that they think will interest them. Some aWendees
may want to take the information back to their or- ganizations,
so consider having handouts available
to distribute at the conference. Also, bring your busi- ness cards or
wriWen contact information to give to


From poster to a^icle?
Interest in your poster by conference aWendees may in- spire you
to take the next step—turning it into an a^i- cle. OOen, journal
editors aWend specialty conferences

and visit poster exhibits. This can be a good oppo^u- nity to query
them about their journals’ potential inter- est in your topic.

Presenting a poster is a chance to learn from at- tendees about
aspects of your work that pa^icularly
resonate with your audience. This can give you a
beWer idea of how to present your work in a journal
a^icle to ensure it’s informative and interesting
and provides clear implications for the nursing pro- fession.

Poster sessions have become an impo^ant pa^ of
most professional conferences and are an excellent
way for presenters to share their work. Enjoy the expe- rience of
proudly standing next to your poster and dis- cussing your work with
interested colleagues. ✯
