NINR considers career development applications only from research doctorate-prepared applicants who have a Bachelor's degree or higher in nursing.

This includes finding effective approaches to achieving and sustaining a healthy lifestyle, easing the symptoms of illness, improving quality of life for patients and caregivers, eliminating health disparities, and addressing issues at the end of life.
