Nursing and midwifery research careers advisory service

National Institute for Health Research

Do you want to take a first step into an academic research career as a nurse or midwife? Do you want a role where you can continue to work clinically as well as pursue your own academic work?

If you have already started your clinical academic career, would you like the opportunity to explore how to make your next move along the clinical academic career pathway? Would knowing how to apply for and increase your chances of successfully securing NIHR research fellowship funding help?

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Nursing and Midwifery Incubator, in partnership with the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS), is pleased to announce with the launch a virtual careers advisory service to support nurses and midwifes to start and advance their clinical academic research careers.

The service will be piloted in three RDS regions in England – North West, East Midlands and the South East. The pilot service will run over the next 12 months to learn how best to offer this service and make a decision if it merits national roll out. The service is only available at the moment in the pilot regions. It can be accessed by completing an online enquiry form.

Your enquiry will be reviewed by an experienced advisor based in your region who will then arrange an online appointment, so you access information and advice.
