The American Society of Registered Nurses is presently funding the following grants:

ASRN Presidential Research Grant- I This ASRN Presidential Research Grant has been established to integrate evidence based practice (EBP) into hospital care. Lack of EBP can compromise patient care, and this Presidential Research Grant has been created to help identify and evaluate the necessary mechanisms that should be put into place to help nurses build the skills needed for EBP.

ASRN Presidential Research Grant- II This ASRN Presidential Research Grant has been established to reach scientific and evidence based conclusions regarding outpatients’ post-surgical pain, and bedside pain management.

ASRN Presidential Research Grant- III This ASRN Presidential Research Grant seeks scientific and evidence based results regarding the correlation between anti-psychotic drugs and the advanced-stage methanphetine patient.

ASRN Presidential Research Grant- IV This ASRN Presidential Research Grant focuses on the attrition of new student nurses, including where they go after leaving the field and why they left.

ASRN Presidential Research Grant- V This ASRN Presidential Research Grant has been established to evaluate the preparedness of Nurses in the US if the pandemic should imminently occur, and what necessary steps are required to prevent the pandemic’s varying stages of invasion.

Stop Treating Nurses Like Commodities

What happened to me — and continues to happen to countless others — is needless but likely inevitable in the toxic culture we’ve created and perpetuate. I was party to the culture for more than a decade before I began to recognize the toxicity and call it out. Finally, I feel like the real me again, but now with more experience and confidence. It’s time for all of us to speak up against the notion that nurses are commodities and against the collateral damage of toxic corporate health care. Start sharing your stories about burnout, post-traumatic stress, and the dangers of metrics-based health care. Something’s got to give, and it shouldn’t be the well-being of caregivers.
