The Queens Nursing Institute (QNI) is calling on nurses to apply to its Fund for Innovation and Leadership 2014.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available as well as a year-long professional development programme for community nurses and their teams who have an original idea to improve patient care.
The application deadline is 7 October 2013 for projects that will start in January 2014 and run until January 2015.
The application can be downloaded from http://www.qni.org.uk/for_nurses/project_funding.
The fund has been running since 1990 and has supported hundreds of projects to give nurses new skills and experience.
