about the symposium

The University of Florida College of Nursing is hosting the 2025 Rita Kobb Nursing & Health Informatics National Symposium on Friday, Feb. 28, 2025. This Symposium is a bi-yearly lectureship series that explores topics in health and nursing informatics. It will take place at the University of Florida Reitz Union, Gainesville, Florida. 

symposium theme

Through lectures, podium and poster presentations, the 2025 Rita Kobb Nursing & Health Informatics National Symposium will explore the intersection between nursing, data science, implementation science and clinical practice. 

With the theme — Nursing3: (“Nursing” Data Science + “Nursing” Implementation Science) to impact “Nursing” Practice — esteemed keynote speakers will share their knowledge and extensive research and clinical experiences with leveraging data to measure the efficiency, communication and decision-making in health care models and clinical research networks, along with the economic value of nursing practice and leadership.    

With an emphasis on the intersection of data science, implementation science and clinical practice in nursing, we anticipate that the symposium will be a premier venue for showcasing the latest research at the dynamic interface of data/implementation science and patient care. We look forward to your submissions, which we hope will provide a rich program of cutting-edge, innovative approaches in the field of nursing, clinical and translational informatics.
