background and history
evidence-based education and evidence-based practice are rapidly becoming the gold standard for nursing regulatory and nursing accrediting agencies. the nln maintains its leadership role by establishing nursing education research as the foundation for building the science of nursing education, facilitating and funding research in this area, and developing novices to become expert researchers.
in the early 1980s, the nln created the council for research in nursing education and made a commitment to provide funds to support small investigator research projects.the funds were reallocated in 2000. since then, the level of support has continuously grown, from an initial $12,000 to $40,000.
current program objectives
among the nln's current objectives is to support multi-site projects that are relevant to the first of the nln's priorities for research in nursing education -- innovations in nursing education: creating reform.
in addition, we are encouraging applications for projects that will be implemented through partnerships between established researchers and beginning researchers who will be mentored throughout the process.
the nln is proud to support nursing education research and to provide leadership in the ongoing development of the science of nursing education. we look forward to your participation in this initiative.
