  • W7 Complete the First Draft of the NIH-R36 Grant Application


    Week 7 – Assignment: Complete the First Draft of the NIH-R36 Grant Application

    In order to complete this assignment, review the NIH General Instructions Application packet. It will guide you through the process of completing the R36 Grant Application Package and give you specific information on what to include in each section (e.g., project summary, biographical sketch, specific aims).

    In Week 5, you completed a foundation grant proposal; this week, you will write a draft of the research grant proposal using the same program, but with the added research component. Pay careful attention to the differences between the grant proposal you draft for this week; some parts will be the same, others must be modified or moved around, while others will be completely unique to the new proposal.

    As a reminder, in Week 3, you identified the specific aims and research objectives. In Week 4, you created a budget and wrote a statement of personal capacity (you can use this to inform your biosketch).

    You are now ready to flesh out your specific aims and research method section and complete the rest of the elements required for the R36 grant. Be sure to follow the directions in the NIH General Instructions Application packet precisely. Focus on the following:

    • The abstract
    • The project narrative
    • Specific aims
    • The research strategy
    • The bio sketch
    • The budget and justification

    **Note: NIH grants are written in single space, NOT double space!

    Complete the NIH R36 research grant application in a Word file. You must also include the following in a Word document along with the NIH R36 research grant application:

    • Project summary/abstract (no more than 30 lines of text)
    • Project narrative (2-3 sentences)
    • Biographical sketch (5 pages max)
    • Budget (3 pages)
    • Budget justification (as long as needed)
    • Specific aims (1-page max)
    • Research strategy (6 pages max)

    In addition, meet with your professor for about 15 minutes to discuss any questions that come up regarding the specific details of your grant application requirements.

    Support your assignment with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.

    Length: 10-20 pages, not including title and reference pages

    Your proposal should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic.

  • Capstone W10 DQs



    Dissemination of EBP and research, such as presenting results at a conference or writing an article for a journal, is an important part of professional practice. Identify one professional journal and one nursing or health care conference where you might present your project. Discuss why each of your choices is the best option for you to disseminate your new knowledge.


    Discuss why EBP is an essential component of the practice of a BSN-prepared RN. Identify two ways in which you will continue to integrate evidence into your practice and encourage it within your work environment. What obstacles could challenge this plan, and what steps will you take to minimize their impact?

  • Wk 9 Capstone Ds



    Discuss one personal strength and one weakness you have regarding professional presentations. Name one method for improvement for each of these and discuss why it is important for you to work on these skills if you want to present your findings in a more formal setting.


    Sustaining change can be difficult, as there are many variables that can affect implementation. One critical component of EBP is to ensure that practice change is part of an organization’s culture so it will continue to impact outcomes over time. Name two potential barriers that may prevent your EBP change proposal from continuing to obtain the same desired results 6 months to a year from now, and your strategies for overcoming these challenges.
