Anniversary Events Highlights Video

NINR commemorated 25 years of nursing research at the NIH with several special events beginning in the fall of 2010 and continuing into 2011. Our Institute was founded on the belief that nursing science not only deserved a place within NIH, but also that it could contribute in new and distinctive ways to the health care sciences and improve the health of our nation’s people. Reaching our 25th anniversary is not simply a milestone - it signifies the progress and achievement of nursing science.

Please enjoy the video below recapping the anniversary events, and thank you again for a very special year!


As part of the celebration, we planned many events focused on increasing our scientific outreach.
