Foundation awards thousands in grants to nurse researchers

Twenty-eight nurse researchers received more than $249,000 in grants from the American Nurses Foundation’s 2015 Nursing Research Grants program. The foundation is the charitable and philanthropic arm of the American Nurses Association.

“Over the last 60 years, the Nursing Research Grants program has awarded over $4 million to beginning and experienced nurse researchers and credentialing programs for patients, nurses and health care organizations,” NRG Chairwoman Cynthia Arslanian-Engoren, PhD, RN, ACNS-BC, FAHA, FAAN, associate professor and director of faculty affairs and faculty development at the University of Michigan School of Nursing, said in a news release. “Thanks to our supporters, this is a legacy that will live on and advance the nursing profession.”

Each year, foundation scholars, reviewers and funders contribute to groundbreaking studies that shape and influence nursing practice and play a vital role in advancing scientific health research, according to the release. The 2015 grant recipients are scholars from 22 institutions in 17 states.
