Sustaining Membership

Dear Leaders and Future Leaders in Nursing Research:

You are invited to join the The Midwest Nursing Research Society Foundation's Sustaining Membership! Sustaining Members are those who continue to contribute to the Founders’ Circle after completing their original $3000 pledge. The mission of the MNRS Foundation includes raising funds to increase the numbers and amounts of Dissertation and Seed grants awarded each year to our members. Please join us in the Sustaining Membership!

We need you in the Sustaining Membership, demonstrating your support of research by MNRS members.

We look forward to your joining us!

Please email me today.

Lauren S. Aaronson, PhD, RN, FAAN
