A popular tool in academia to encourage scholarship is the ‘lunch and learn,’ where faculty members come together during their lunch hour to share with one another projects they are working on and offer support and suggestions to each other.

This webinar series is intended to recreate the collegial feel of the lunch and learn where nursing faculty come together to dialogue and discuss methodologies, successes and challenges they encounter while working on a scholarship project.  This year, each session will highlight one of CASN’s National Research Priorities for Nursing as a theme. It will include an overview of the presenter’s current project, and how the theme was/is being addressed in that project.

Intended to serve as inspiration and a networking opportunity for participants, this year’s webinar series will be moderated by the members of the CASN Research and Scholarship Committee.


Nurse educators, nurse researchers and nursing graduate students who wish to connect with similar individuals working on scholarship projects.

  2. To build nursing research capacity.
