Small Grant Applications Open!

Do you have a clinical evidence-based project (EBP) project or researchable question? We want to help fund it!

NANN’s Small Grants Committee is now accepting applications from members interested in initiating their own research EBP project and developing their research skills. The program is designed to encourage novice researchers and nurses with clinical questions to formalize their projects and submit for funding.

Selected candidates will partner with an experienced mentor to put together a research or EBP proposal. The review committee is available to help recommend a mentor if needed. Step-by-step application instructions are available. 

Make a difference in your practice and contribute to nursing knowledge to improve neonatal nursing and patient care.
