MNRS virtual conference provides spotlight for exceptional science

Several College of Nursing faculty were honored at the 2020 Midwestern Nursing Research Society’s (MNRS) 44th Annual Research Conference last week. Rather than cancel because of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, MNRS decided to host a virtual conference with the theme of “Advancing Nursing Research with Diverse Populations.”

MNRS explained on its website that “the science needs to be shared, student work needs to be fostered, and nursing researchers need a place to share ideas, innovations, and methodologies. We must be flexible while acknowledging this global health issue.”

“The science was exceptional, presented by researchers and scholars at all levels –students, junior investigators, mid-career and senior scientists,” said Cindy Anderson, PhD, APRN-CNP, ANEF, FAHA, FNAP, FAAN, senior associate dean of academic affairs and educational innovation and professor in the College of Nursing who also serves as president of MNRS. “It was a fitting celebration of the World Health Organization’s Year of the Nurse and Midwife, highlighting the significance of nursing research to the health of our nation and our world.”
