Nurse Faculty Award

Grant Application

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.
