"We are exquisitely positioned to use science generated by highly-trained nurses to generate cures, reduce symptoms and side-effects, and promote health and well-being aimed at individuals, families, and communities, states Karen Drenkard, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, president of the FNINR."

"In the last year, we have had important conversations with key Congressional leaders who are understanding and valuing how nurses function as scientists, individually and on integrated research teams. With the large number of newly elected officials nationally and at the state level, the Ambassadors will join others, including our Board, to bolster awareness and action for those discoveries that save lives, advance health, and reduce costs."

FRIENDS OF THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF NURSING RESEARCH (FNINR)
FNINR’s VISION is to be a bold voice to communicate the impact of NINR’s work to elevate nursing science, improve lives and advance the Nation’s health.

FNINR’s MISSION is to provide resources to support nursing research and advance the mission of the NINR. The Friends seek to support research-based nursing practice by educating nursing professionals and the public about the advances made through nursing research and its benefits to patients, families, the community and the delivery of health care.

The Friends of the National Institute of Nursing Research (FNINR) is an independent, non-profit organization founded in 1993. Nurse researchers are grounded in clinical nursing practice and focused on the physical, mental, emotional and social needs of patients. They recognize the illness and the presence of health risk factors affecting the overall well-being of individuals.

The health care community faces new challenges and opportunities to improve patient care each year. With the continuing leadership provided by NINR and the support of FNINR, nurse researchers will continue to contribute to the enhanced health and well-being of all Americans, especially in a time when cost-effectiveness and quality of care are equally championed by the public and the Nation’s decision makers.
NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF NURSING RESEARCH (NINR)
The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) was established as a Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and as an Institute in 1993. This placement among the 27 Institutes and Centers within the NIH has added a new scientific perspective to enrich the Nation’s biomedical and behavioral research endeavors.

NINR’s mission is to promote and improve the health of individuals, families, communities, and populations. The mission is accomplished through support of research in scientific areas such as chronic and acute diseases, health promotion and maintenance, symptom management, health disparities, caregiving, self-management, and the end of life. NINR also supports the training of new investigators who bring new ideas and help to further expand research programs. The ultimate goal of NINR’s research is its dissemination into clinical practice and into the daily lives of individuals and families.
