FNINR Ambassadors

Role of FNINR Ambassadors: Ambassadors focus specifically on educating Congressional leaders as to the high-impact, cost-effective interventions and quality-of-life enhancements that emanate from nursing science. The goal of FNINR’s ambassador program is to increase research funding for continued scientific breakthroughs and training of scientists made possible by the NINR.

“FNINR Ambassadors are key players for our organization,” says Victoria Niederhauser, President of FNINR, “These nurse leaders share the excellent outcomes resulting from nursing science that is supported by NINR and advocate for continued funding to conduct cutting edge research that improves health and healthcare.”
