FNINR Ambassador Applications are Now Open!

FNINR Ambassador Applications are Now Open!

The Friends of the National Institute of Nursing Research is soliciting Ambassador applications for the 2021 cohort. This unique advocacy program began in 2014 and has grown to include over 30 Ambassadors.

FNINR Ambassadors will focus specifically on educating Congressional leaders as to the high-impact and cost-effective treatments and quality-of-life enhancements that emanate from nursing science. Ultimately, the goal is to increase research funding to ensure the training of scientists at a time of major scientific breakthroughs and to promote the NINR mission and strategy. 

NINR goals include improving the health of individuals, families, and communities through developing nurse scientists of the 21st century, and conducting research on health and illness, symptom management, wellness, chronic conditions, end-of life and palliative care, and innovation.

You can find more information about the organization and the commitments of the FNINR Ambassadors here.


Applications can be found here and are due on October 25, 2020.

A Special Note from FNINR's President

These are challenging times for healthcare professionals and scientists, and for the people and communities we serve. Likewise, we are experiencing insights, innovation, and a deeper sense of community. As a member of the FNINR community, please know that you have been in my thoughts.

The work you do and the work you support are critical, and are more important now than ever. Many in our communities are on the frontlines engaging with COVID-19, others supporting direct care givers, and others devoted to discovering safe practices, and all of us committed to expanding our knowledge and transformation of healthy communities.  FNINR is sharing your stories, stories of nurse scientists on the frontlines of the pandemic, advancing the health of communities. FNINR honors scientist heroes by telling their stories and by advocating for them at the federal level as we support the National Institute of Nursing Research.
