The training of scientists at all stages of their careers sustains the foundation for excellence in nursing science.  The development of a strong cadre of nurse investigators has been a primary goal of NINR since its establishment.  To continue to support advancements in science and improvements in health, it is essential that the scientific workforce of the future be innovative, multidisciplinary, and diverse.  NINR training programs—summer institutes, individual and institutional pre- and post-doctoral fellowships, and other Institute-sponsored intramural and extramural research and training opportunities—are designed to achieve this vision.
