2022 Annual Research Conference

The Midwest Nursing Research Society invites you to join us for the 46th Annual Research Conference. The theme for the 2022 conference is “Innovative Solutions: Re-Imagining Nursing Research and Scholarship." The learner outcomes for the conference are:

  • Explore diversity to foster equity, inclusion, and belonging through nursing research, practice and scholarship.
  • Discuss integrating patient and community engagement strategies to ensure a collaborative approach to nursing research and practice.
  • Investigate the spectrum of structural racism affecting patients, families, care providers, and communities and develop solutions to improve patient outcomes and provider relationships.
  • Ensure delivery of culturally sensitive and relevant Care Delivery Models acknowledging accessibility, desirability, and affordability.
