Specific Recommendations Related to the Nurse-Scientist Workforce

Most of the recommendations that impact nurse-scientists may be found in Chapter 7. The following recommendations are unique to nurse-scientists and responsive to the challenges identified above.

  1. Increase NIH support for nurse-scientists to engage in team science, particularly at institutions where there is an existing cadre of nursing researchers to serve as mentors.
  2. NIH should encourage more people to take advantage of currently offered programs that provide research training for nurses earlier in their careers, including programs that admit students into doctoral-level training directly following their undergraduate degrees.
