~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Hi Senior Nurse Scholar Program The Institute of Medicine, in collaboration with the Amencan Academy of Nursing (AAN) and the Amencan Nurses Foun- dation (ANF), manages a Senior Nurse Scholar-in-Residence Program. The purpose of the program is to encourage and assist a prominent nurse leader in the articulation and assessment of health policy issues of national concern. The Senior Nurse Scholar selects a specific health policy issue consistent with the priority activities of the lOM and the nursing profession. The Scholar is located at the IOM, attends selected orientation meetings with key officials the in federal agencies as well as congressional committees with other fOM Fellows, and attends forums and meetings of the Institute, the Na- tional Academy of Sciences, the AAN, the ANF, arid the American Nurses Association. The Scholar works with mentors who assist the individual in refining the selected topic and bridging the gap between academia and the service and health policy sectors. As part of the residency program, the Scholar is required to submit a peer-reviewed paper before the end of the program that should be published and dis- seminated to a broad audience. The paper is expected to translate and frame academic or experiential knowledge into policy-relevant rec- ommendations on a specific topic. 97
