As part of a Spotlight series on grant writing by members of the Center for Clinical Investigation of the Wound Ostomy and Continence Nursing (WOCN) Society, this article completes an explanation about writing the Methods section of a grant proposal. The aim of this series is to enhance the skills of WOC nurses to increase submissions of high-quality grants related to WOC nursing science and success in garnering funding, particularly from foundation grants, such as that of the WOCN. In this article, writing about the sample and setting, power analysis, sampling and recruitment procedures, implementation and data collection procedures, statistical analysis plan, and ethical considerations are described.
