Mid-Career Special Interest Group

Mid-Career Special Interest Group
The Mid-Career Special Interest Group (SIG) works to serve and meet the particular needs of the mid-career nurse scientist.
Inaugural year:
Chair: Annette Bourgault, PhD, RN, CNL, FAAN
Chair-Elect: Amy Miner Ross, PhD, RN, CNS

Definition of Mid-Career: Nurse scientists in typical academic settings who use the rank of associate professor (with or without tenure) as indicative of mid-career status. We acknowledge this definition may not apply in all settings (e.g., military) but this clarification may assist CANS, academic, and other institutions in creating resources specific to mid-career nurse scientists.

Our Goals/Objectives:
  • To develop research collaborations among mid-career nurse scientists and the CANS research community.
  • To facilitate the exchange of peer support and enhanced professional socialization among mid-career nurse scientists.
  • To provide opportunities for mid-career nurse scientists to promote and strengthen their existing leadership and scholarship
