Research Modules

Developed by the 2020-2021 ANNA Research Committee, the ANNA Research Modules are a series of five educational programs that provide in-depth detail for nephrology nurses to use as a resource in developing research and research grant proposals. The series is designed to assist ANNA members in applying for the clinical practice, research, and evidence-based practice grants available through ANNA.
