Into Research: Developing Black and Brown Nursing, Midwifery & Health Visitor Researchers'

Funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR)

The NIHR 'Developing Black and Brown Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visitors Researchers’ Programme' aims to develop future researcher leaders from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds by combining work-based experience, academic study, and developing a Research Challenge, through our bespoke development programme. Applicants will come from a variety of Nursing, and Midwifery clinical backgrounds, which allows a multi-professional learning opportunity.


This bespoke programme aims to increase the numbers of Black and Brown Nurses, Midwives and Health Visitors across all clinical, education and public health professions with a proper understanding of research and its role in improving health outcomes, including an ability to participate in and utilise the results of research.

Who is this programme for?

This programme is open to any nurse, midwife or health visitor who identifies as Black or Brown. It is open to those who want to start a research career, those who have done a higher degree e.g., Master or PhD and want to continue on a research pathway, those who have done some research and want to learn more, those who are curious and want to engage in research or those who want to reignite their research career. It is open to all nurses and midwives working, in the NHS, Social Care and education sector. This can be used as a bridging programme, a catalyst or introduction to a research career.
