Mentored Research Experiences that Influence Healthcare Outcomes and Evidence-based Practice
Nursing research and healthcare system needs are rapidly incorporated into our curricula and learning opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students. Our nursing education is provided in partnership with healthcare systems, faculty in active practice, and nurse scientists.
Undergraduate Student Research
Michigan State University considers inclusion of undergraduate students in research a high-priority.
