What our Members Say

Our Mission

The purpose of CANR is to foster research-based nursing practice and practice-based nursing research.

Our Organization

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.

Our Research

Canadian Journal for Nursing Research is the official journal of CANR and 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.
