Advancing Research

"Donor funding is not merely a financial contribution; it is an investment in the advancement of nursing research and scholarship that resonates across our faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students. With the support of our donors, we are able to delve deeper into three pivotal areas of research: symptom science and management, health promotion and illness prevention, and health services research. Through rigorous qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches, coupled with implementation science, data analytics, and literature synthesis, we are pioneering innovative solutions to complex healthcare challenges for people across the lifespan."
