Woodend Clinical Education Research Grant

CASN is pleased to announce a new, annual $5,000 research grant called the “Woodend Clinical Education Research Grant”. The purpose is to fund a graduate student’s (master’s or doctoral) research project focusing on clinical practice education.

Dr. Kirsten Woodend states: “We have been using the same clinical education model pretty much back to Florence Nightingale. With the pressures to increase numbers of nursing students and increasing challenges in finding placements there’s a great need to explore the way we prepare registered nurses for practice, trialling new approaches and building a body of evidence to help guide us.  It is my hope that this graduate student research grant will encourage the building of programs of research in this area.”
