The purpose of this Notice is to inform applicants of several innovative areas for PA-08-226 , Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32). (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-08-226.html ).
Background: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) awards Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32) to institutions as one of its primary means of supporting predoctoral and postdoctoral research training, to ensure that a diverse and highly trained workforce is available to fulfill the Nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs (PA-08-226).
The need for nurse investigators who are well trained in basic and clinical research continues to escalate. To help meet this need, NINR announces innovative areas for Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grant Applications (T32).
Implementation: Innovative scientific programs that are interdisciplinary are especially encouraged. Applications from institutions which implement strategies for identifying and recruiting students who have already completed a Bachelor’s Degree in a field other than nursing; students who are from an underrepresented group; or students who are currently BSN-PhD students are particularly encouraged.
In addition, applications which include provisions for the early identification and recruitment of undergraduate students who have the potential to become successful BSN-PhD Fast Track students are also particularly encouraged.
