"I am very honored to be the recipient of the 2018 research grant. This funding allowed me to hold focus groups to capture the voice of the Register Nurse and Nursing Assistant and their role in patient safety. As a PhD student, this allowed me to go beyond my dissertation work and have the opportunity to do a mixed methods study. I am excited to be part of an organization that has such a wide influence on nursing leadership, education, and administration."
Peggy Jenkins, PhD, RN
School Affiliation: University of Colorado College of Nursing
"ALSN is the perfect organization for educators of nurse leaders and I have been a member reaping benefits for several years. It was an honor to receive a research grant in 2018 for innovative action research. Over three semesters, we placed PhD and DNP health leadership students together in course work. We gathered voices of the students and constructed new knowledge describing doctoral scholarly roles and models for doctoral leadership education in health systems. Our work was accepted for publication in Advances in Nursing Science. We appreciate the support of ALSN in moving discourse forward on collaborative models for doctoral education"
2017-2018 Research Grants
Congratulations to the two grant awardees!
"ALSN has been my professional organization home for several years and as such, it was an honor to receive the Early Career Award. I am an assistant professor who recently transitioned to the tenure track, and this award was my first externally-funded research grant. As such, it was meaningfully recognized by the dean and my faculty colleagues. The grant has enabled me to establish an interprofessional research team and to collect important pilot data that will help lay the foundation for a successful research career. To have the support of ALSN as my first extramural funder is something I will always treasure."
Susan Weaver, PhD, RN, CRNI, NEA-BC.
"It is an honor for myself and all administrative supervisors to have received the ALSN 2017 Research Award for research on the development of the Administrative Supervisor Practice Environment scale. Considering the lack of research on the Administrative Supervisor role, receiving this grant from ALSN reinforces the value of this research specific to this vital nursing leadership role."
