Strategic topics addressed by the projects include women’s health, patient safety, pain management, adolescent health, and patient satisfaction.
Nursing Research Program’s Goals
- Provide the systematic study and evaluation of nursing practice and patient care.
- Develop evidence-based practice.
- Implement nursing research projects and disseminate findings back into nursing practice.
- Support nursing research partnerships with academic, public, and industry partners that enhance the innovative development and distribution of nursing knowledge for the benefit of the professional health care community.
