This research grant will be awarded to an individual who has completed their PhD but has not yet received a NIH RO1 or comparable research award. The 15th Anniversary grant is made possible by the Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science and its organizational partners (ANF, ENRS, MNRS, SNRS, STTI, and WIN).

"The Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science and its partners are very pleased to offer the $15,000 research grant to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the Council. The recipient of this funding will be announced at the State of the Science Congress in September, 2016," said Council Chair, Marti Rice, PhD, RN, FAAN.

The joint reception with FNINR will take place on Wednesday evening, September 14, preceding the conference. It will be a celebration of the Council's 15th Anniversary and FNINR's 30th, in recognition of the Council's and its partners' achievements in becoming recognized as the collective, national voice for nursing science.

The 2016 conference will focus on determinants of health and its implications for nursing science. Aiming to identify innovative strategies to optimize health and apply research findings related to diverse populations across the lifespan, this conference will concentrate on discussing the implications of emerging sciences in relation to environmental, lifestyle/behavioral and omics as determinants of health for nursing research and health policy.American Academy of Nursing logo
