Nurses are key to patient care across the trajectory of Parkinson’s disease. Direct care, patient education, and case management are just a few of the varied roles and areas of expertise nurses bring to patients and families. The Parkinson’s Foundation recognizes the value of nurses who are educated in Parkinson’s disease. Therefore, the Parkinson’s Foundation is sponsoring seed grant funding intended to support Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Scholars (alumni of the “VNF”). This award is known as the Parkinson’s Foundation Nurse Faculty Award.
This award supports up to a maximum of $10,000 for a scholar to take her/his Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program independent project to the next step or to explore expanding another idea that would enhance their ability to teach about Parkinson’s or increase learning of Parkinson’s disease among nurses, students, or patients. Only nurse faculty who have completed the Edmond J Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson’s Foundation (“VNF”) may apply.
Level of Support
The Parkinson’s Foundation Nurse Faculty Award is for a maximum of $10,000 a year. Up to 10% of the award total, i.e., $1,000, may be used to defray indirect costs. Salary support is permitted.
This award is open to Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Scholars only.
The application process will be open from Monday, February 25 through Monday, March 25, 2019. Review will take place in April and notices of award will go out in May 2019.
