NLN Nursing Education Research Grants Program

Research activities advance the NLN's goal of taking the "lead in the conduct of research that informs and promotes evidence-based teaching, advances the science of nursing education, and provides and interprets data about nursing education and the nurse educator workforce." Over the past decade the NLN has expended more than a million dollars to support research in nursing education.
