Manitoba Centre for Nursing and Health Research (MCNHR)

The Manitoba Centre for Nursing and Health Research (MCNHR) is a research unit within the College of Nursing, University of Manitoba that promotes and supports the conduct, dissemination and uptake of collaborative nursing and health research.

Formerly known as the Manitoba Nursing Research Institute (MNRI) which was established in October 1985, the name of the Centre/Institute was changed in 2008 to reflect a broader interdisciplinary focus on health research, and to have wider appeal for health care professionals and researchers from disciplines other than nursing to become members of the Centre. “Manitoba” is retained in the name because the Centre is envisioned to play a key role in promoting nursing and health research throughout the province.

 Mission:

To create an environment that promotes and supports the conduct, dissemination and uptake of collaborative nursing and health research to benefit the health of Manitobans and beyond.

 Vision:

Members of the Manitoba Centre for Nursing and Health Research will be recognized for excellence and leadership in nursing and health research provincially, nationally and internationally
