Rural Nurse Organization (RNO) Poster Award Winners
International Rural Health and Rural Nursing Research Conference
Bozeman, Montana July 29 – 21, 2014
The RNO was proud to sponsor best poster awards at the International Rural Health and Rural Nursing Research Conference held in Montana this past July. There were many excellent posters being displayed at the conference. Each poster entry was evaluated by three judges on the criteria of significance, innovation, approach and presentation using a 9-point Likert scale ranging from 1 (exceptional) to 9 (poor). Judge scores were averaged with the lowest score receiving 1st prize. The next two lowest scores were tied, thus there were 2 second place awards. The awards were announced at the RNO luncheon on Wednesday July 30, 2014.
Congratulations to the winners!
