Finding health solutions through research

The Office of Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice is a collaborative, interprofessional environment that enables nursing faculty and students to engage in focused and innovative research. Through our projects, we seek to:

  • Better understand health and disease across the lifespan
  • Provide effective solutions to clinical problems and disease management, especially in rural settings

We provide support in the following areas:

  • Funding resources
  • Data management
  • Grant-writing and dissemination
  • Student mentoring
  • Consultation

We encourage all students to be involved in research, which helps students go beyond the classroom environment and stimulates their curiosity. Please contact our office to discuss your interests in health-related research and scholarly projects. We will be happy to explore potential research opportunities with you.
