American Nurses Foundation: Reimagining Nursing Initiative Pilot Program Awards

The American Nurses Foundation’s Reimagining Nursing (RN) Initiative aims to elevate the nursing profession’s capability to match future health demands by investing in opportunities for transformative change that lie at the intersection of education, regulation, and practice. To that end, the foundation is seeking grantees to pilot and evaluate bold new ideas and undertake this work in ways that enable others to replicate the pilot’s success and accelerate widespread transformation in nursing.

The RN Initiative will award innovative pilot programs that equip nurses with leading-edge knowledge, tools, environments, and systems to deliver exemplary care. Each pilot may request $500,000 to $1.5 million over three years. The foundation is seeking pilot programs that address one or more of the following priorities that capture the key dimensions of the nursing profession: capability, quality, and reach:

Practice-Ready Nurse Graduates: Efforts to support innovations in competency validation and clinical preceptorship that ensure newly graduated nurses can immediately contribute to and succeed in a continuously transforming health delivery system.

Technology-Enabled Nursing Practice: Efforts to support the design and implementation of technology-based tactics and tools designed by nurses and for nurses that meaningfully enhance the practice of nursing.

Direct-Reimbursement Nursing Models: Efforts to expand nursing practice opportunities and elevate the value of nursing through direct reimbursement for nursing care delivery, management, and coordination outcomes.
