The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) has partnered with Alberta Innovates to create the Advancing Knowledge in Practical Nursing Research Grant.
Alberta's Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) are involved in the assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation of nursing care. Practical Nurses are versatile professionals providing health care services in direct clinical care as well as in education, research, and administration.
LPNs are an integral facet of the healthcare team, but little research has occurred directly addressing their role. This funding opportunity is designed to support research and integrated knowledge translation (iKT) projects that focus on LPN practice, utilization, and the quality of nursing care provided by LPNs in Alberta.
The results from the project are expected to add to the growing body of knowledge about the LPN role and provide evidence to support the growth of the LPN profession.
Please note, the deadline for applications for the Advancing Knowledge in Practical Nursing Research Grant, is September 21, 2018.
