SNRS is dedicated to supporting our southern region’s nurse scientists in our 14 state area that includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. Our mission is to advance nursing research in the southern region through the dissemination and utilization of research findings; facilitating career development of our members at all levels from nursing student to senior scientist; promoting nursing’s image as a scientific discipline; and enhancing communication among our members. Our southern region has a unique population base from which to generate new knowledge that improves health care systems and health outcomes in the South. On behalf of your SNRS Board of Directors, we would like to encourage you to participate in our research interest groups, contribute your time and leadership talent to committee membership, use SNRS as your networking organization to build your web of scientific collaboration, and disseminate your research findings through our annual meeting. Through your active engagement in SNRS, we can be a vital force to IMPACT the Southern region through nursing research.
