AACN Impact Research Grant

Funding Agency:
American Association of Critical-Care Nurses

The AACN Impact Research Grants are funded and supported by AACN. We encourage experienced clinicians and researchers to propose projects that support inquiry and systematic research that generates new knowledge. The grants are designed to ensure a vital source of clinically relevant research for creating the evidence-based resources that influence high acuity critical care nursing practice. Research projects are two years in duration.

We designed the AACN Impact Research Grant to address gaps in high-acuity and critical care areas of clinical research. The grants will ensure the pipeline for research that is vital to AACN’s research translation resources, such as protocols and practice alerts.

These grants will also facilitate research to support other AACN priorities, such as describing the impact of family presence, influencing nurse certification and implementing standards for healthy work environments.
