PURPOSE OF THE NIGHTINGALE GRANT PROGRAM: 
The purpose of the AAHFN Nightingale Research Grant Program is to support novel, innovative heart failure (HF) nursing research to improve patient and family outcomes. Priority is given to junior faculty and PhD/DNP students; however, all nurse researchers are invited to apply. Research projects should address AAHFN’s Organizational and Research Priorities. Two grants are offered and are designed to ensure a vital source of clinically relevant research/evidenced-based practice (EBP) projects for creating the evidence-based resources that influence heart failure nursing practice. We expect and hope that the knowledge gained from the project(s) will be shared, thus upon completion of the research study or project, AAHFN requires grant recipients to submit their work for presentation at the 2018 AAHFN Annual Meeting.

AAHFN Nightingale Grants ($1,000 and $500 EACH)

(Maximum funding period is for 6 months post receipt of award notification)

o  These funds are available to support research/EBP projects that advance professional practice among HF nurses; generate new knowledge in the field of heart failure nursing to improve patient outcomes; and support educational initiatives to increase HF nurses’ knowledge and/or patient and family with priority given to junior faculty and/or doctoral students.

o  Eligibility: Principal investigators must be AAHFN members, and must hold an earned master's degree or higher, or have completed candidacy requirements for a PhD or DNP program.

FUNDING PERIOD:

The maximum funding period depending on grant type, is for six months from the receipt of the award notification.  No “no cost” extensions are permitted and the final 15% of the award will only be distributed if the final report is received within 60 days of the scheduled completion of the grant funding period and the findings are presented at the 2018 AAHFN Annual Meeting.
