A key objective of BACCN is to provide facilities for nurses to further
their education, skills, and personal and professional development in caring
for critically ill and dependant patients.
BACCN invites its members to apply for grants (up to £500) and scholarships (up to £2000) for attendance at conferences, practice development and research. The aim of the awards is to enhance skills, knowledge and competence in critical care nursing to improve patient care and outcomes.
BACCN Grants & Scholarships are for everyone - you could apply for funding
for anything from attending a local study day to keep your knowledge updated,
to a long term research project*. You can either apply for £500 or £2000 -
its entirely up to your circumstances and aspirations.
* Please note unfortunately at this time we are unable to provide funding for MSC/PHD and Post graduate training.
There are 3 submission deadlines of:
- 30th November

Successful applicants of grants (up to £500) will be expected to submit a 500 word article to Nursing in Critical Care News section. Scholarship applicants (up to £2000) will be expected to submit a full article to Nursing in Critical Care for peer review, or an abstract for oral presentation at the National BACCN conference (conference registration, accommodation and travel expenses to be met by the applicant)
