DNP & PhD Research Grants

Joann Wessman

Joann Wessman, PhD, RN, former Coordinator of Family Health Ministries at Riverdale Church in Andover and member of the FCNN’s Research Committee, made a lead gift in January, 2012 to our Annual Gift Fund. She specified this gift be used to support faith community nursing research by nursing scholars. The FCNN Board of Directors was impressed and decided to make a strong investment in faith community nursing research by adding to the fund and committing to support it, with the help of friends, for at least three years.

The Network will award funds of up to $1,500 to PhD or DNP scholars who research the overall effectiveness and impact of faith community nursing.

Our thanks to Joann for this gift!

We encourage DNP students to contact us with their ideas for community projects. Click here to view FCNN's Request for Proposals.
