The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) announced the appointment of six new members to the National Advisory Council for Nursing Research (NACNR). Members of the council are drawn from the scientific and lay communities, embodying a diverse perspective from the fields of nursing, public and health policy, law, and economics. NINR, a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is the primary federal agency for the support of nursing research.
The NACNR meets three times a year on the NIH campus to provide recommendations on the direction and support of the research that forms the evidence base for nursing practice. An important role of the council is to conduct the second level review of grant applications that have previously been reviewed for scientific merit. In addition, the council reviews the Institute's extramural programs and makes recommendations about its intramural research activities.
NINR Director Dr. Patricia A. Grady is pleased to welcome the following new members:
