NINR Summer Program Graduates 18At the Summer Genetics Institute (SGI), an intramural training program sponsored by the National Institute of Nursing Research, 18 nurses (9 faculty in schools of nursing and 9 doctoral students), completed an intensive 8-week molecular genetics research training program on July 30. The program provides a foundation in genetics for use in clinical practice and the research laboratory. Since the program began in summer 2000, 84 students from nearly every state in the union and many major universities have completed the program. Graduates earn 12 hours of doctoral-level credit from Georgetown University School of Nursing and Health Studies. Says NINR's Dr. Mindy Tinkle, "Participants take away a rich learning experience. The program enables graduate students and faculty to develop or expand their research capacity and enables advance practice nurses to develop and expand their clinical practice in genetics."
