The Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science is holding the 2014 State of Science Congress on Nursing Research. This conference will take place September 12 – 20, 2014 at the Washington Hilton, located very close to our Washington, DC Hotel. The 2014 State of the Science (SOS) Congress on Nursing Research examines the future directions in science related to health and health systems. Nurse scientists work with complex health needs and health systems and apply different approaches to emerging science. During this conference they will learn more about trends in Big Data and in the BRAIN Initiative.According to NIH, the BRAIN Initiative is Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies, which is part of a new Presidential focus aimed at revolutionizing our understanding of the human brain. This will allow researchers to be able to produce a revolutionary new dynamic picture of the brain will show for the first time how individual cells and the complex neural circuits interact in both time and space. This new research will allow nurse scientists to optimize health and address complexities in certain individuals, populations, and health systems. With newly identified innovative strategies it will apply multiple discoveries for diverse populations across the lifespan. This conference will allow The Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science in its goal to be a strong voice both nationally and internationally to support the development, conduct and utilization of nursing science.
