The Midwest Nursing Research Society is always working to enhance your member experience and benefits!  In addition to the new initiatives planned in the 2020 strategic plan, MNRS is evolving the membership year and renewal process.

In the past, membership was based on when you joined.  MNRS is now standardizing the membership year; all members will be invited to renew on July 1, 2020 and will be paid through June 30, 2021. This new consistent membership year will ensure membership is based on actual benefits and not arbitrary calendar dates.

MNRS values your membership and appreciates your contribution to nursing research; therefore, we are offering personalized renewal rates to all current members during this transition year. The rates are based on your current member expiration date and anticipated member benefits for the year.
*** Please note that this is a benefit we are only offering to current members. All new members will be charged the full membership rates regardless of when they join during the year. MNRS will NOT offer pro-rated membership dues in future years, to lapsed members, or to new members.

All MNRS membership levels offer full voting privileges, all newsletters and notices, subscription to the Western Journal of Nursing Research (WJNR), reduced prices for Annual Conference, and inclusion in searchable online Membership Directory.
