Stories of DiscoveryNINR has launched a new web feature that highlights nursing science. The Stories of Discovery webpage puts a spotlight on programs of research from NINR-funded institutions around the country. The discoveries cross the spectrum of strategic priority areas including self-management, symptom science, and end-of-life care. 

“From enhancing self-management of conditions like asthma and HIV, to helping seniors receive continuity of care, these stories are examples of how nursing science is paving the way to improve patient outcomes,” said NINR Director Patricia Grady.

NINR plans to add more stories as additional discoveries are made. The stories join other features that highlight NINR- funded research including Because of Nursing Research and Notable Advances. Visit to read more about Stories of Discovery.
