Research Emphasis Areas
College of Nursing faculty are dedicated to advancing the growing body of nursing
research. Our interdisciplinary teams focus on high-need areas that are at the heart
of our researchers' commitment to the patients and communities we serve.
Health Promotion and Risk Reduction
This core focuses on interventions and care strategies to promote health and reduce
risk for individuals and populations across the lifespan. Our research focuses on
disparities in breast cancer screening and epidemiology, high-risk teens and stress
and anxiety management.
This core focuses on interventions and care strategies for at-risk populations to
improve their health and well being. Our research addresses poverty and aging, violence
and victimization, substance abuse, sexual orientation and gender identity, immigrant
health and mental health problems in children.
Health Systems Research
We focus on processes and their effects on health care results. We examine emergency
preparedness, evaluate the health care workforce and leadership, and study the impact
of new tools and techniques in clinics and practices.
