Every year, students and faculty from the PhD programs at Duke University School of Nursing and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill College of Nursing gather for a collaboration dinner. As a way to enhance student engagement and speaking opportunities, this dinner now opens with a TED-Talk style event. Five students from each school are selected from a pool of abstract submissions to present a five-minute TED-Talk. This event is student-driven and each year has received wonderful feedback from both student presenters and attendees. Please view the links below, highlighting the 2017 TED-Style Talk presenters from Duke University School of Nursing.
