Writing on paperResearch for and among medical-surgical nurses is an important objective of the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN). We wish to expand the awareness and use of research and support nurses in their research.

Our online resources listed below help you learn about, conduct, and participate in research that benefits medical-surgical nursing.

Take Part in Research

AMSN promotes Research Studies that we believe will benefit our members and medical-surgical nursing. If an invitation to participate in a research study is on the AMSN Website or emailed to you by AMSN, it has already been carefully examined and approved by the AMSN Research Coordinator. All Current Research Studies available are listed.

Conduct a Research Study

Nurses may participate in research in two different ways. You may conduct a research study, and ask members of the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) to participate. You may also take part in another nurse’s research study.

Research Grant Funding

The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nursing (AMSN) provides three types of grants available for nursing research, and you may apply for all AMSN Research Grants year-round—there are no open and close dates to submit an application for an AMSN Research Grant!
