NRIG About

NRIG membership fees: $30; free for undergraduate nursing students


The NRIG promotes the conduct and utilization of nursing research in Ontario through lobbying, funding, educating, collaborating and networking, with the goal to improve the health of people in Ontario.

Our website is updated quarterly to inform members of current research issues as well as conference, publication and funding opportunities. Research resources are developed for nurses and there are minimal start-up funds available for small research projects.
