National Institute for Nursing Research

Abstract

The mission of the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) is to promote and improve the health of individuals, families, and communities. To achieve this mission, NINR supports and conducts clinical and basic research and research training on health and illness, research that spans and integrates the behavioral and biological sciences, and that develops the scientific basis for clinical practice. NINR’s Strategic Plan: Advancing Science, Improving Lives, focuses on areas of science in which the health needs are greatest, and in which NINR-supported research can have the largest impact. It is organized around four areas of scientific focus: symptom science, wellness, self-management of chronic conditions, and end-of-life and palliative care. Two other areas, promoting innovation and developing the nurse scientists of the 21st century, are emphasized in all areas of NINR’s research programs. The Plan is intended to be a living document, one which can be adapted as new opportunities and challenges arise.

Alliance of Nurses For a Healthy Environment (ANHE)

Abstract

The Mission of ANHE: Promoting healthy people and healthy environments by educating and leading the nursing profession, advancing research, incorporating evidence-based practice, and influencing policy. There are three work groups in this organization. The Education Work Group is developing curriculum materials for nursing schools and for continuing education. The Practice Work Group is sharing resources for nurses who are “greening” their hospitals and other health care facilities, as well as developing best practices and model policies to decrease unnecessary environmental exposures in our workplaces. They are also exploring standard practices that recognize environmental exposures as a determinant of health. The Research Work Group is also promoting more nurse researchers in this area, mentoring new researchers, and sharing information about funding sources. The Policy/Advocacy Work Group is addressing environmental health policies at the state and national level and helping to mobilize the nursing community to support policies that encourage citizen knowledge about potential hazards through “right to know mechanisms”, reduce/eliminate known and suspected hazardous chemicals that are in our air, water, food, soil, and products.
