Want to be part of the solution in improving care to our patients? Then become a Bedside Scientist and receive up to $1,000 in grant funding to conduct your evidence based quality improvement project or research study. Grant funding is available to all clinical staff, including nursing and clinical support staff.

To provide additional support to grant writers, the Nursing Research Council will provide feedback to all grant proposal writers in advance. Details are provided in the grant application. Please contact Cathaleen Ley at with any questions or to make an appointment to brainstorm ideas in advance.
