Overview

Mission Statement:
Promote and support the development of health services research that focuses on nursing practice, workforce, and delivery of care.

Goals:

  1. Increase the involvement of health services researchers and the use of health services research methods in the investigation of issues relevant to nursing and the patients for whom they provide care.
  2. Promote interdisciplinary collaboration between nurses and other health services researchers.
  3. Support and foster the development of new and current nurse health services researchers.
  4. Disseminate and promote health services research related to nursing practice, workforce, and delivery of care.

The Interdisciplinary Research Group on Nursing Issues focuses on: Influencing the development of scientific health services research knowledge relevant to nursing practice and education; Building a community of interdisciplinary individuals interested in advancing health services research issues (such as practice, education, and others) that are important to nurses; and Facilitating the development of nurses and other in the conduct of health services research and the use of health services research methods.

IRGNI New Investigator Profiles
To support and foster the development of new nurse health services researchers, the Interdisciplinary Research Group on Nursing Issues (IRGNI) is developing the New Investigator Profile. Each month, IRGNI will provide an opportunity for new scholars (doctoral students and those within five years of completing their terminal degree) to promote and share their work with IRGNI and AcademyHealth researchers.   

Please consider nominating yourself, a colleague, or a student for a New Investigator Profile. Submissions should include: the individual’s name and credentials; a short discussion of a recent publication or presentation; a brief 3-4 sentence biography; and a headshot. Links to professional websites, social media accounts, or my.academyhealth.org profile can also be included. Nominees must be a member of IRGNI. 

Please submit materials or any questions to Hilary Barnes, IRGNI communications liaison: hbarnes@nursing.upenn.edu

Nominations will be accepted on a rolling basis.
