Each year, CNNT calls for nomination for two separate awards: the CNNT Outstanding Nephrology Nurse Award and the CNNT Outstanding Dialysis Technician Award. Typical nominees would be those who have made contributions to the field of nephrology in the area of leadership, research, education, or patient services, or in a combination of these areas. Award nominees current NKF-CNNT members. Nominations for the awards are due August 15 each year, with awards given at the following year's NKF Spring Clinical Meetings.

Research Grants

The purpose of CNNT Research Grants Program is to further knowledge of nursing and technician issues in the management of kidney failure. The grants may cover basic or applied research on nursing and technical issues in the area of kidney failure, or early intervention and treatment of chronic kidney disease, or development and evaluation of education programs to enhance patient/family understanding of kidney failure treatment, or demonstration projects related to kidney failure and rehabilitation.
