The Gemstone Society

Let's Build a Brilliant Community Together!

The Midwest Nursing Research Society (MNRS) originally began to provide a place for nurses to collaborate, and collaborate we did! Over time, the founding members began to realize the benefits of having an organization dedicated specifically to nursing research.  With some careful attention and a lot of hard work, we have grown into the organization it is today. We're a society where scientists, innovators, and drivers of clinical practice across the career trajectory, come together to share ideas and grow our field through innovative research.

Each year, we host a state-of-the-art conference that draws over 900 attendees from all over the United States. But we're much more than the annual conference alone!  We provide a vast array of networking and learning opportunities every day to help our members advance their careers in nursing science.  We've been making impact for over 48 years, and we're still going strong.  We're going places, and if you haven't joined us on this journey, we invite you to come along!

The Midwest Nursing Research Society (MNRS) is committed to integrating diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging principles throughout all areas of our organization, including membership, engagement, scholarship, dissemination, finances, and leadership core values.
