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.
