NINR Launches Grantsmanship Videos

Drs. Ronald Hickman and Joan Austin appear in a new NINR video on grantsmanship.

NINR has released a new series of videos titled “Building and Sustaining a Scholarly Career.” The videos provide an overview of opportunities and dilemmas often encountered by mid-career scientists as they work to develop a sponsored project into a program of research (POR). Senior and midcareer scientists and NINR program officers discuss significant guideposts, useful strategies and lessons learned.

The videos delve into establishing and sustaining a successful POR, delineating useful strategies to develop a career trajectory and maintain a POR in a demanding academic environment and identifying approaches to challenges that deter POR success.

As part of the commemoration of NINR’s 30th anniversary year, senior nurse scientists and NINR staff held a series of workshops for midcareer scientists at each of the regional Nursing Research Society annual conferences. The “Building and Sustaining a Scholarly Career” videos distill the main points of these sessions and are available at
