AACN Impact Grant Program

Deadline: November 1, 2012

Researchers and Clinicians Invited to Apply for Grants From American Association of Critical-Care Nurses

The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses invites clinicians and researchers who are AACN members to apply for the association’s annual grants programs.

This year, AACN is making available nearly $200,000 in research funding, including three impact research grants to support inquiry that drives change in high acuity and critical care nursing practice.

AACN developed the Impact Research Grant program to ensure a pipeline for evidence-based resources that include protocols and practice alerts in support of a wide range of AACN priorities. Priority projects will address gaps in clinical research at the organization or system level and translation of these findings to bedside clinicians. Projects may include the use of technology to assess patients and manage outcomes, ways to create a healing and humane environment, and processes and systems to optimize high acuity and critical care nursing. Applicants may request up to $50,000 in total costs. Research must be completed in two years.

AACN continues to offer the annual AACN-Sigma Theta Tau Critical Care Grants and AACN-Philips Medical Systems Outcomes Grants of up to $10,000.

Principal investigators for all programs must be current AACN members.
