Margretta Madden Styles Credentialing Research Endowment Fund 


For 61 years, the American Nurses Foundation has been supporting nurse researchers across the country in their studies to improve healthcare and patient outcomes. 


The Margretta Madden Styles Credentialing Research endowment fund provides support to beginner and experienced researchers each year.  This award is named for a past president of the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the American Nurses Association, and the International Council of Nurses. Dr. Styles was the architect of the first comprehensive study of nursing credentialing and a lifelong advocate of its value to the public and the profession.


The Styles fund supports research on the impact of credentialing programs in nursing for patients, nurses, and healthcare organizations. Credentialing programs of interest include certification, accreditation, and recognition programs such as the Magnet Recognition Program® and the Pathway to Excellence Program® .
