The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) is a wonderful place to explore what is going on in nursing research today. From the organization's newly revised Website (, you can read synopses of 10 landmark research studies: Changing Practice, Changing Lives. You can watch or listen to podcasts of National Institutes of Health (NIH)- or NINR-sponsored nursing research educational programs and lectures, such as the NINR 20th Anniversary "Celebrating Nurs-ing Science: The Research-Practice Link." Novice researchers can take a free online course called "Developing Nurse Scientists" and earn 5 free continuing education credits. Researchers can also explore funding opportunities from the Website. If you want to know more about the NINR, you can read the organization's new strategic plan, which outlines four strategies to advance nursing science: (1) integrating biology and behavior, (2) designing and using new technology, (3) developing new tools, and (4) preparing the next generation of nurse scientists.
