Each year, through its Nursing Research Grants program, the American Nurses Foundation (ANF) provides funds to beginner and experienced nurse researchers to conduct studies that contribute toward the advancement of nursing science and the enhancement of patient care. Some of the specific grants have research area requirements – such as hospice. Some require or give preference to membership in a specific nursing association. In addition, ANF encourages applicants to draw upon the American Nursing Association's (ANA’s) research priorities. Applicants choosing to utilize ANA’s National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) database will be eligible for up to an additional $3,000 to offset database management costs. (Use of NDNQI data requires a separate application to the NDNQI program which must be completed and approved prior to the May 1, 2013 NRG application date.)
The 2013 application process is now open and will close May 1, 2013.
