Paving the way for a brighter future through nursing research and policy leadership scholarships

Nursing research, innovation, and translation of evidence into practice enable nurses to develop and refine new nursing practice and transform patient care. Research by nurses for nurses will explore elements of patient care, nurse-sensitive outcomes, and the nursing process to improve experiences for patients and their families and carers. Nurses who are offered opportunities to gain research skills will use those skills in their decision-making as professionals.

In a recent report from the League of Scholars, nursing research is the second most impactful area of research in Australia despite being underfunded. We can only imagine what is possible through better investment in nursing research.

At the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) Foundation, our mission is to provide access, through funding, to support initiatives that enhance, develop and recognise contributions made by Australian nurses that will improve the health of the Australian community.

We collaborate with the community to raise funds to support initiatives focusing on research, policy development and advocacy, education, and scholarship.
