Primary Care Nursing
To provide education and support for current and future Community and Primary Care nurses.
Welcome from Dr Andrew Finney; Primary Care Nurse Researcher, Deputy Director of Research and Senior Lecturer, at Keele University School of Nursing.
I'm Dr Finney, a primary care nursing researcher, supporting the SPCR and based at Keele University. I have co-designed this webpage with primary and community nursing colleagues to be a focal point for nurses with an interest in primary and community nursing research. We hope this page provides you with, guidance to research roles, to funders, specific calls, forms and innovations that benefit you in whatever level of research focus you have.
