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. While priority is given to junior faculty and PhD/DNP students other applicants will be considered such as:nurse leaders who mentor/educate nurses in HF (project based). All nurse researchers are invited to apply. Projects in progress are acceptable if they are not near completion and the budget supports the need for funding. Research projects should address AAHFN’s organizational and research priorities. Two grants are offered with the aim of supporting clinically relevant evidenced-based practice (EBP) projects that contribute to EBP in heart failure nursing. We expect that the knowledge gained from the project(s) will be shared so upon completion of the research study or project grant recipients are required to submit their work for presentation at the AAHFN Annual Meeting.
Eligibility: Applicants must be
• AAHFN members*,
• hold a master's degree or higher,
• or have completed candidacy requirements for a PhD or DNP program
*non-members may apply but must become a member if grant awarded
