The National Association of Neonatal Nurses believes that research must be used to drive the practice of neonatal nursing. This means the organization shall provide avenues for members to become more active in reading, understanding, conducting, and practicing research and evidence-based neonatal care.
You are at the forefront of the research needed to continuously improve the state of neonatal care. Because of this, NANN has taken a great step forward with the following new and existing initiatives.
The Research Institute was formed to support you and the neonatal community at large by providing greater access to and assistance in developing and advancing your knowledge and skills, regardless of your level of education or experience and research training. The creation of a research agenda, programming and dissemination, mentoring, and grants campaign are all a part of the Research Institute. The Research Institute is governed by a Steering Council, made up of NANN volunteers who represent the interests of research in neonatal nursing.
NANN gratefully acknowledges the funding provided by the following companies and Charter Members of the Research Institute:
|Philips Mother and Child Care||Abbott Nutrition|
|Mead Johnson Nutrition||March of Dimes|
This support enables NANN to offer you the following current and future programs:
Are you doing research in your NICU? Are you making a practice change in your NICU and evaluating the results? Have you considered submitting the results of your project to the NANN Research Summit Abstract Review Committee?
Join us for the next Research Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona, March 24-26, 2015, by submitting a Research Project or Evidence-Based Practice change project or proposal that you have implemented or are planning to implement and evaluate by next spring. A few select individuals attend the fully-compensated summit each spring to present their research or practice change outcomes and discuss the process/results with other researchers from around the country and the world!
Take advantage of having the Research Section Editor of NANN's journal, Advances in Neonatal Care, at the Summit to help you with editing and publishing your manuscript.
NANN is now accepting submission online only for the Research Summit. To submit your project, click here!
The deadline to submit is October 26, 11:59 PM CST.
The Research Summit is made possible through an educational grant from Mead Johnson Nutrition.
The Small Grants Program is open to NANN/NANNP members with an interest in furthering their research interests and/or initiating their own research study or evidence-based practice (EBP) project. The program provides an avenue for connecting those with little or no research background with experienced researchers to enhance their skills and promote the success of the research study or EBP project.
The submission deadline has passed. Notifications will be sent out in April.
If you are selected to receive one of the four Small Grants, you are required to attend NANN’s Annual Educational Conference, September 10-13, 2014 in Phoenix to be recognized and receive your grant. You are also required to present your findings at the 2016 NANN Annual Educational Conference.
The Small Grants Program is sponsored in part by the following
