NINR Launches Improved Website
Access to information about this vital area of science and the programs of the National Institute of Nursing Research, just got easier with the launch of their improved website www.ninr.nih.gov.
Akinso: Want to find out how nursing research is working to improve the health of the nation? Access to information about this vital area of science and the programs of the National Institute of Nursing Research, just got easier with the launch of their improved website www.ninr.nih.gov. Dr. Patricia A. Grady, NINR Director, said the website will be a valuable resource to anyone who visits — from the general public to nursing professionals and the entire science community.
Grady: The new website that we have is user friendly. It has a great deal of more information. It is interactive. For example, for one of our large communities, the extramural community, it has a course that's online that they can take that will help them to develop into nurse scientists. So those who are scientists or who want to be can learn a great deal from that course, it even has continuing education credits.
Akinso: A new feature gives visitors access to NINR podcasts of pre-recorded audio and video presentations, and meetings that can be viewed or listened to on a computer or portable media player. Dr. Grady said the NINR recognizes the importance of providing up-to-date information on nursing science and scientific findings in an easily accessible and comprehensive format.
Grady: The website also has accessibility to all of the funded programs that we have. So I think there's a lot of information for people who might be interested in science as a career as to what's going on, what's happening, etc. There are also a number of opportunities on campus in the intramural program as well as across the country that they will become familiar with by using the website.
Akinso: Dr. Grady said she's excited about the revitalized website and urges the public and future scientists to check it out.
Grady: You should visit it soon and visit it often. People who visit it once always come back. AKINSO: Once again the improved website is www.ninr.nih.gov. This is Wally Akinso at the National Institutes of Health Bethesda, Maryland.
