Application Deadline: Nov. 4, 2019
The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is pleased to announce the availability of a National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) mentored training award to support a graduate student (master's, doctoral, or postdoctoral) from an accredited program (or a PhD program) at an AACN member school. The grant will support an evidence-based project (EBP) focusing on Substance Use Disorders (SUD) treatment practices in health care. Two awards of up to $10,000 are available for the selected awardee(s), who will develop a project that will advance research, dissemination, and adoption of evidence-based SUD treatment practices through a plan that:
- Provides the student with a mentored opportunity to learn about key areas of SUD and SUD treatment strategies through a systematic literature review, attendance at conferences and workshops, and interaction with leading experts.
- Provides the student with experience that fosters interest in a clinical career focused on evidence-based management of SUD or potentially securing an NIH career development or other grant opportunity related to research in the field of SUD.
- Provides the student with education and experience in effective dissemination of research findings and implementation/adoption of research in clinical practice.
Applicants are encouraged to develop projects that address or improve current gaps in the dissemination of research findings or implementation/adoption of evidence-based treatment practices. The awardee also will have an opportunity to present project results via poster at an AACN conference. Awards will be announced on Dec. 6, 2019.
