Contribute to Building Nursing Research and Enhancing Safe, Quality Practice


Cipriano, Pamela F., Porter-O'Grady, Tim, American Nurse Today


THIS YEAR, the American Nurses Association (ANA) Enterprise embarked on a 12-month campaign dedicated to providing registered nurses (RNs) with information and resources to attain and maintain a culture of safety within their practice and work environments.

Many of the advances we shared on the safety and quality front are attributable directly to the efforts of our colleagues in research--whether it's addressing transitions in care, emerging infections, or healthcare worker fatigue. Nurses engaging in scientific study not only have the ability to identify gaps in care and practice; they also possess the expertise to turn their findings into relevant, evidence-based policies and protocols. We all rely on their work to make our work and profession better. However, nurses who conduct research cannot succeed without our support.

ANA and the American Nurses Foundation have a 60-year partnership and a shared commitment to building an extensive and varied body of nursing research and, in turn, improving healthcare access, practice, and delivery in many fundamental ways. One of the Foundation's marquee initiatives is the Nursing Research Grants (NRG) Program. Every year, the Foundation provides funds to beginner and experienced nurse researchers to conduct studies that contribute to advancing nursing science and enhancing patient care. A new component of the NRG program is aimed specifically at supporting research that leads to improving the quality of care provided in clinical settings, as well as the integral role nurses play in designing better care.

So far the NRG program has supported nearly 1,000 scholars. Their contributions are significant and wideranging, determining factors that influence nurse satisfaction, healthcare reimbursement, and the care of patients ranging from neonates to individuals at the end of their lives. The full measure of the scholars' work can be found online at www.givetonursing.org. This year, the Foundation is awarding over $250,000 to more than 25 scholars, who undoubtedly will make their own mark on our profession and health care.

Also this year, the Foundation has the privilege of launching two new research-focused funding sources that will promote quality care and a culture of safety. …
