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 1996, Geneva received its first nursing research grants from TSNRP. These grants were Geneva’s first federally-funded research programs and launched a rewarding collaboration with the nursing researchers at Madigan Army Medical Center that continues to this day. Since that time, Geneva has remained committed to military nursing research in a broad spectrum of military treatment facilities across the nation.
In 2019, Geneva assumed a program management role over TSNRP under a cooperative development agreement with the Uniformed Services University.
Today, Geneva advances the mission of TSNRP through full-time dedicated program support staff, full-time evidence-based practice facilitators, leased office space, and full life-cycle award management.
