Canadian Association for Nursing Research (CANR)
The Canadian Association for Nursing Research (CANR) is a national organization with representation from every province and territory. We are a Canadian Nursing Association (CNA) interest group and as such, serve on the CNA Advisory Council.
The purpose of CANR is to foster research-based nursing practice and practice-based nursing research by:
- providing information about research studies, methods, funding and other resources
- strengthening linkages between research, education, administration,and clinical practice
- representing members' interests to governments, funding agencies, and other nursing organizations
- recognizing excellence in research activities
- educating professionals and the public about the significance of the nursing research-practice partnership
Canadian Journal of Nursing Research
Canadian Journal for Nursing Research is the official journal of CANR. I is a peer-reviewed, quarterly journal published by the McGill University School of Nursing since 1969. With world-wide circulation, CJNR's primary mandate is to publish original nursing research that develops basic knowledge for the discipline and examines the application of the knowledge in practice. Research related to education and history is also welcomed, as are methodological, theoretical, and review papers that advance nursing science. Letters or commentaries about published articles are encouraged. CANR members have reduced subscription rates.
