NASN Research Grants and Awards

  

Letter to School Nurse Researchers 

NOTE: Due to the stock market reaction in recent months, NASN Endowment Fund (EF) investment returns may be less predictable than planned.  To reduce the risk of dropping below $1M, NASN will  wait one year to initiate disbursement of EF returns.  Research awards will be funded as noted below.

Purpose

To encourage and support research regarding school nursing and school health.
Research is necessary to:

  • Provide a scientific basis for school nursing practice.
  • Assure accountability to clients for providing quality nursing care
  • Improve school nursing practice

Grants are provided to promote any area of research pertinent to school nursing OR one that has had an impact on student health and/or well-being OR directed topics of interest as determined annually by NASN Research Committee.  Information on grant history will be included in the application and in the Awards program.

Funds up to $5,000.00 can be awarded in the categories of Research Grant and/or Directed Research Grant; a specific amount of money is NOT assigned to the categories.  Less than the budgeted amount may be awarded depending upon budget requests and quality of grant applicants.  More than three grants (meeting criteria) may be awarded provided the combined annual grant funding does not exceed $5,000.00.

NASN General Research Grant

History
This NASN General Research Grant combines three previous research awards: Lillian Wald Research Award for research impacting the health of children (1982), Pauline Fenelon Research Award for research in school nurse practice issues (1987), and the Lina Rogers Award for research impacting school nursing services for students (2001). Lillian Wald was the founder of school nursing in America through the Henry Street Settlement in New York City on October 1, 1902. Lina Rogers was the first school nurse in America. Pauline Fenelon was an NASN President, 1984-85. These three awards were first combined in 1997 to allow increased funding for research.

NASN Directed Research Grant

History
This NASN Directed Research Grant originated in 1998 when Carol Costante, a school nurse administrator from Maryland who served as NASN President (1997-98), made a monetary donation to promote research efforts by school nurses. In 2001, NASN approved separation and renaming of the awards and grants to establish research grants for the purpose of funding proposed (not completed) research. The original seed money donated by Past President Costante facilitated the development of this award for any identified area needing targeted research related to school nursing and/or student health.

Directed Research Grant Priority Topics:

Please review Research Priorities for a complete list.

Increased emphasis will be placed on applications that address an emerging School Nurse Sensitive Outcome (please contact Erin Maughan (emaughan@nasn.org) at the NASN office for additional details).
