The NLN recognizes that research is fundamental to quality, timely, nursing education based on scientific inquiry. It is the only national nursing organization funding nursing education research. The NLN | Chamberlain University College of Nursing Center for the Advancement of the Science of Nursing Education promotes evidence-based nursing education and the scholarship of teaching.
The center’s establishment in September 2012 began an innovative partnership to bring positive change to nursing education research for all sectors of the profession. The center supports research, develops scholarship, and produces publications that build the science of nursing education. The NLN | Chamberlain Center reaches out to partners and collaborates with research societies and organizations to sponsor programs and conferences that present and disseminate research.
