Environmental health nursing research harkens back to the days for Florence Nightengale. ANHE's Research Workgroup has been successful in supporting nurse researchers nationally in a variety of ways including a peer mentoring program, a data base of publications in environmental health by nurse researchers, and a Research Retreat.
