The American Nurses Foundation (ANF)

The American Nurses Foundation (ANF) launched its 2014 Nursing Research Grants (NRG) Program on Saturday, February 1, 2014.

The program will provide up to $225,000 in research awards to beginner and experienced nurse researchers.
ANF is the charitable and philanthropic arm of the American Nurses Association (ANA). The 2014 grant program will focus on nurse leadership and how to empower nurses to become change agents in the transformation of the health care system. The program will also award grants ranging from $5,000 - $25,000 in a wide range of other disciplines.

The American Nurses Foundation is excited to announce the expansion of our Nursing Research Grants program with the support of $30,000 in funding provided by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to support clinically based research. To support improving the quality of care provided in clinical settings and the integral role nurses play in designing better care, the Foundation will increase its funding of studies of systematic, data-guided activities designed to bring about improvement in healthcare delivery with two (2) $5,000 grants to beginning researchers and two (2) $10,000 grants to experienced researchers, with one of each to be awarded to a clinical researcher at a Magnet facility.  More information can be found here.
