Preserving Our Past, Capitalizing on the Present, Embracing the Future

Research & Evidence-Based Practice
Dissemination Expense Assistance

ANCA is concerned that members who conduct health care research studies and EBP projects likely will need financial support to disseminate and communicate their outcomes and results.  Advancing knowledge and improving nursing practice depend on new learning.  Dissemination takes on many forms; each is appropriate for expense assistance under this program.  Examples:

  • Article Processing Charges for articles in press or published within one year of seeking reimbursement
  • Manuscript reprints
  • Poster preparation or mailing expense
  • Registration fees to present outcomes and results (poster or podium) at a professional nursing conference

Expense assistance is on a reimbursement basis and is limited to a maximum of $1000 each request.  Members may request support once each calendar year.  Support is available on a first come, first served basis, until the annual allocation is expended.  The Research & EBP Dissemination Expense Assistance Program application form should be submitted with dissemination details and accompanying documentation and receipts.

To apply, complete the Research & EBP Dissemination Assistance Application form and submit along with the required attachments by email to or mail printed copies to the address on the form.
