A third nursing doctoral student forum was held prior to the annual meeting. In addition to local participants at the University of Virginia, doctoral students came from Australia, (Queensland), Singapore, the United Kingdom (Nottingham), and Hong Kong.

The forum comprised key presentations from a nurse and a physician researcher at the University of Virginia. Both presentations highlighted international interdisciplinary research collaboration. Participating doctoral students were given the opportunity to present on their research topics and to discuss their research, and to network with fellow doctoral students and nursing colleagues within an international context. Participants were also invited to meet with researchers in their areas of interest and to tour clinical facilities in Charlottesville. The results of an evaluation of the forum will be made available in the near future.
