Developing a feasible, fundable, and sustainable program of research (POR) is an essential career goal in research. Nurse scientists can lay the foundation for a salient POR as early as during their doctoral studies. The ensuing years of postdoctoral experiences are informative as they expand their research skills and knowledge around their research area of interest. Following graduation from a doctoral research program, novice military nurse scientists (MNS) are placed in positions that are conducive to fostering a POR...

PURPOSE: Measure and compare cerebral blood oxygen saturation values in frontal brain lobes of subjects with and without a history of mTBI. METHODS: Bilateral frontal brain lobe blood oxygen saturation was measured using near-infrared spectroscopy in mTBI and non-brain injured subjects while alternately breathing room air and a mildly hypoxic gas mixture...
