American Nurses Foundation to award $200,000 in 2013 research grants priorities include nurse impact on health care quality and efficiency.

SILVER SPRING, MD -- The American Nurses Foundation (ANF) today announced the launch of its 2013 Nursing Research Grant (NRG) Program that will provide 29 research awards totaling more than $200,000 to beginner and experienced nurse researchers.

ANF is the charitable and philanthropic arm of the American Nurses Association (ANA). The 2013 grant program will focus on ANA's research priorities and applications which use ANA's National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators[R] (NDNQI[R]).

"Nursing research is vital to patients, nurses, and our colleagues in health care. Our perspective, our expertise, and our problem-solving is distinct and of critical importance," said Geri L. Wood, PhD, RN, FAAN, chair of the ANF Nursing Research Grant Program, and associate professor and director of nursing research and evidence-based practice at the University of Texas' M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Individual grants range from $5,000 to $25,000. The largest award, the Margretta Madden Styles Credentialing Research Award, is named for a past president of the American Nurses Credentialing Center, ANA, and the International Council of Nurses. The award funds research on the impact of nurse credentialing programs for patients, nurses, and health care organizations.

Information and access to the online application are available on ANF's website at www.anfonline.org. The application process is open through May 1, 2013.

The American Nurses Foundation is the charitable and philanthropic arm of the American Nurses Association (ANA), the only full-service professional organization representing the interests of the nation's 3.1 million registered nurses through its constituent and state nurses associations and its organizational affiliates. The Foundation supports ANA programs which promote the welfare and wellbeing of nurses, advancing the nursing profession, thereby enhancing the health of the public.
