TriService Nursing Research Program
The TriService Nursing Research Program (TSNRP) was created by Army, Navy, and Air Force nurses who believed a central agency would enable military nurses to conduct more effective research. Recognizing that military nurses play a critical role in the health and welfare of the military population, Congress appropriated funding for nursing research in 1992 under TSNRP.
In 2019, Geneva assumed a program management role over TSNRP under a cooperative development agreement with the Uniformed Services University. Geneva was able to retain 90% of TSNRP during the transition and generated cost savings through innovative approaches.
Today, Geneva advances the mission of TSNRP in the following ways:
COL (Ret.) Arthur “Don” Johnson, NC, PhD
Dr. Johnson, Director of Research at the U.S. Army Graduate Nursing Program in Anesthesia Nursing, was honored with the first annual TSNRP Mentorship Award in 2020, in recognition of his 40+ years as a nurse scientist and mentor.
CDR Kennett Radford, PhD, CRNA
CDR Radford is the Deputy Program Director at the USU Graduate School of Nursing. His research is focused on exploring the effects of the intravenous anesthetic agent ketamine on learning and memory by investigating the side effects on males versus females.
In 2016, Geneva and Jonas Philanthropies partnered to create a joint scholarship that funds doctoral nursing candidates seeking to improve healthcare for veterans and military personnel. Geneva’s commitment to nursing research is deeply rooted in the organization’s history beginning with the organization’s founder, Jane Taylor, a former nurse.Learn more
