|Public Health RIG|
The focus of the Public Health RIG is to advance nursing knowledge related to public health nursing, community health nursing and nurse managed centers. The membership consists of researchers and clinicians who share a common interest in expanding the research evidence base for community and population based health interventions in order to improve practice and policy.
We invite members from across the research spectrum. Novice level students, entry level PhD and DNPprofessionals are as welcome as seasoned, experienced, funded and published researchers. We are an open-minded group without bias for a specific philosophical orientation. We aspire to quality research to build knowledge and science.
Our goal is not only to increase membership, but to mentor one another so as to promote a research agenda consistent with Quad Council (ACHNE, ANA, APHA, & ASTDN) recommendations in an ever changing health care system so as to fill knowledge gaps and develop strong evidence that cultivates healthy communities among diverse populations.
The members of this section meet yearly at the annual MNRS conference. An e-mail database supports communication among section members. Members are at various stages in their research programs and include undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty and other nurse researchers.
Section activities include developing or presenting research symposia at the annual conference, submitting and/or reviewing research briefs from the Public Health/Community Health/ Nurse Managed Centers Section members for MNRS publications, reviewing abstracts for the conference related to public health/community health nursing or nurse managed centers, and networking with like minded colleagues at the annual conference.
We also give awards at the section level for outstanding contributions in service and research.
