have announced a new collaborative grant to support research focused on excellence and innovation in nursing education. The grant comes at a time of significant discussion in the healthcare industry about the need to prepare nurses to deliver higher quality patient care in an evolving healthcare system. The Nursing Education Research Grant is part of the Sigma Theta Tau International/Chamberlain College of Nursing Center for Excellence in Nursing Education and will fund two $10,000 research projects annually.
“The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International, is proud to partner with Chamberlain College of Nursing to support research that will guide nursing education policy development,” said STTI President Hester C. Klopper, PhD, MBA, RN, RM, FANSA. “We strive to provide nurses globally with the most current and comprehensive resources for developing nursing research, and we know that research will ultimately enhance the policies and educational models that prepare nurses for practice.”
“Chamberlain and Sigma Theta Tau International are committed to advancing excellence in nursing education globally to prepare nurses to meet the rising standards of care,” said Dr. W. Richard Cowling, vice president of academic affairs for Chamberlain College of Nursing. “The insights discovered from our collaborative research grant will play a critical role in guiding the development of enhanced teaching models and elevating nursing education.”
