Project Funding

Since 1990 The Queen’s Nursing Institute has supported hundreds of nurse-led projects.

These projects are one of the most direct ways in which we help community nurses to deliver improvements in patient care. Dissemination of project results also helps nurses in other areas to learn from and implement new ideas. All projects are able to take advantage of our highly-rated professional development programme, supported by the Burdett Trust for Nursing.

The next application deadline is Wednesday 8 October 2014.

"The difference these plans are already making to the lives of our children and families is amazing. I would like to thank you very much for the opportunity to develop the plans in such a professional manner and with such support.”

"The workshops were excellent: the best personal development / study days I've ever been on. They were a bonus as I hadn't taken in, when we applied, that they were part of the award."
