AUSTIN, TEXAS — The American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) announces the opening of the AANP National Nurse Practitioner (NP) History Grant. This funding opportunity is for a research or scholarly project focused on the historical foundations of NP movement at the national or international level.
Open to all AANP members in good standing who demonstrate expertise or interest in historical research, the grant will provide up to $5,000 in funding. AANP National NP History Grant projects should contribute novel findings to the body of existing knowledge as new, original research related to — and of importance to — the NP role.
“In 1965, Drs. Henry Silver and Loretta Ford made history by creating the NP role,” said April N. Kapu, DNP, APRN, ACNP-BC, FAANP, FCCM, FAAN, president of AANP. “Today, NPs continue to build on their legacy through service and by preserving NP history. As NPs, we share a responsibility to document the successes of early NP pioneers and to continue their admirable work by eliminating the barriers that stand between patients and equitable access to high-quality health care.”
All AANP National NP History Grant submissions must be made by March 1, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. CT. Applications will be judged on the contribution to historical research, resources to be utilized, dissemination plan, articulated budget and overall quality of submission. Only completed applications will be accepted and reviewed.
