ALSN Research Foundation Inaugural Kick-off Campaign 2021

Understanding nursing leadership and its effect on patient and organizational outcomes has never been more important given the challenges that healthcare organizations currently face. The mission of the Association of Leadership Science in Nursing (ALSN) is to unite academic and practice leaders to shape leadership science and education in nursing and nursing practice.

We seek to establish the ALSN Research Foundation to support the research priorities of ALSN.* The primary purpose of the Research Foundation is to provide funds to current members in good standing of ALSN to shape the future of leadership science in nursing.

Our Goal: Raise $8,000 to support a research grant that focuses on leadership science, education in nursing, and/or the practice of nursing leadership. The goals of the research project must align with the mission and vision of ALSN.

  1. The campaign will be announced and solicited throughout the course of the ALSN 2021 conference (October 16 – 18, 2021).
  2. Donations will be made anonymously through the ALSN website by individuals willing to contribute. All donations will be tax-deductible given the 501c (3) status of the organization.
  3. At the close of the conference, the total amount raised will be announced. 100% of the funds raised during the conference will be used to fund the ALSN Research Foundation and support future research grant(s).
  4. Once the funds are raised, it will be the responsibility of the VP of Research and Research Committee to create guidelines for the research award(s) as well as implement and manage the grant application process and award process using established best practices.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! In order to kickoff the campaign, we want 100% participation of the ALSN Board of Directors.

  1. Nurses’ health well-being, resiliency, and safety in the workplace.
