Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation Certification Research Grant

As long as there is a mechanism of measuring the impact of certified versus non-certified hospice and palliative nurses, the research can be on any relevant topic. Something as simple as the investigator determining the certification status of any nurse participants would suffice as a certification component worthy of grant approval.
