The Center for Research Support

The center and its staff offer comprehensive support to School of Nursing faculty and students, in order to:

  • facilitate the research and scholarly development of the School of Nursing faculty and their intra- and interdisciplinary collaborators
  • provide training opportunities for pre- and postdoctoral fellows in all phases of the research process
  • advance research dissemination and evidence-based practice

The center provides support from two groups at the School of Nursing:

Administrative, Proposal and Financial Support Group

A team of administrators and research accountants work closely with students and faculty on the preparation of grant proposals, oversight of post-award financial management and the dissemination of their research findings through poster development.
