NINR has published an administrative supplement opportunity (NOT-NR-23-009) to support training new cohorts of nurse scientists to address prevention of firearm injury and related health disparities.
Current NINR funded Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grant (T32) grantees may apply to support training of up to two additional trainees in pre-doctoral and/or post-doctoral positions.
For more information about this funding opportunity and details on eligibility, application due dates, and award administration, please view the full funding opportunity announcement.
NINR convened a two-day workshop in November of 2022 to explore how nurse scientists and nursing research can contribute to firearm injury prevention. The multi-disciplinary event included an examination of current research and an exploration of critical research gaps. Advancing research in this area is closely aligned with the NINR Strategic Plan, with all five NINR research lenses highly relevant as perspectives to design innovative and rigorous research to help solve the pressing issue of firearm injuries.
Additionally, work to prevent firearm injuries and their related health sequelae must be situated within all the various settings in which nurses practice including homes, schools, workplaces, clinics, justice settings, and the community.
