Food for thought...

Ultimately, the goal of the ACHNE Research Grant and the Evidence-Based Practice Project is to encourage collaborative scholarship between PhD and Doctorate in Nursing Practice scholars.  Coordination of research efforts between these groups, and innovative practice partnerships, could be worthy of consideration for a larger award than either a Research or EPB award alone.

If you have such a proposal, we encourage you to submit.  There are no scoring criteria for a joint award at this time but the Research Committee will consider them on a case by case basis.
