Administrative History

The Midwest Nursing Research Society is a professional organization of nurses engaged in research on nursing and health. The organization grew out of a project funded by the Department of Health and Human Services in 1975 called the Nursing Faculty Research Development in the Midwest. Membership is drawn from nurses and nursing students in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin. Activities of the organization include sponsoring an annual conference. The organization is supplemented by a grant-awarding foundation.
