Education

Welcome from Dr. Debra Hurd, Chair and Dr. Georgia Narsavage, Chair-elect of the Education Research Interest Group. The purpose (Our MISSION perhaps) of the Education RIG is to: promote, conduct, and disseminate nursing education research. Nursing education research provides evidence for best practice in teaching and learning. We offer networking opportunities, peer support, and inspiration to others interested in this area of work and research. We encourage all members to participate. We welcome all interested parties in our area of work--researchers, clinicians, academicians, and students to our RIG. Be sure to “sign-up” by logging in to the Members-Only section and choose which RIG(s) to join. There is no fee to participate and you can join up to three RIGs as part of your membership benefits. Just “click” on the topic and the Resource Center will do the rest!
