The UK’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has launched an incubator designed to accelerate and support the development of nurses and midwives looking to develop a career leading research.
The Nursery and Midwifery Incubator will look to provide additional activities which will complement current NIHR and Health Education England (HEE) investment in this area with the aim of increasing the number of nurses and midwives developing a career leading research.
The work of the Incubator will develop over the coming months and will include additional resources and guidance to help nurses and midwives make the most of the opportunities available for developing a research career.
A virtual community platform has information and resources, a noticeboard for developments and opportunities, and a forum for discussion and collaboration.
The Incubator has the support of HEE, the Royal College of Midwives and the Royal College of Nursing (RCN).
