A New Director for NINR
Shannon Zenk (right) has also joined the NIH family as director of the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR). Out of an abundance of caution during the pandemic, her swearing-in ceremony was held virtually on October 14, 2020.

    Its good to see both of them. Congratulations to Shannon Zenk. And best wishes to Francis Collins.

    “Out of an abundance of caution during the pandemic, her swearing-in ceremony was held virtually…”

    I assume that by “caution,” Dr. Collins acted out of his awareness of the data and facts about Covid-19 transmission that justify a virtual ceremony rather than being questionably prudent or wary. One does not have to act out of an abundance of caution when the evidence is clear.

    Congratulations Dr. Zink. I am a strong supporter of nursing research. I love research and was on track to obtain my PhD and enter the realm of nursing research. Family issues did not allow me to reach my desired goal. Please carry on for all of us!
