The Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action Research Agenda

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is coordinating a unique, multi-funder initiative to identify, generate, synthesize and disseminate evidence essential to informing efforts to implement the recommendations outlined in the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health” and to contribute to the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action’s goal of advancing comprehensive change in health care for patients and the country. The purpose of this activity is to increase and focus national attention on a common research agenda related to the IOM recommendations and to facilitate and coordinate funding activity across a range of funders of nursing research. Please visit to view a comprehensive list of national research priorities to accomplish this goal.

Proposals submitted in response to this opportunity will be reviewed by RWJF based on: 1) consistency with the research agenda; 2) potential to advance knowledge to support implementation of the IOM’s recommendations and 3) methodological rigor. Proposals that meet established criteria will be shared with members of the Funders’ Community for funding consideration. Applicants will be informed of the status of their proposal within one month of submission.

Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis from June 10, 2011 – January 3, 2012. Information about this opportunity is available on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s website at and on the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action website,, or by calling (215) 573-2981.
