Improving the Human Condition

A Tradition of Translational Research

We believe that nursing is a powerful instrument for improving the human condition. Nursing practice informs our research, and we lead the way in connecting research back to practice so it has immediate impact. The integration of research and practice fosters the development of innovative products that improve care in schools, long-term care facilities, and other settings.

Collaborative and Interprofessional

Collaboration allows us to apply multiple lenses to cross-cutting issues, conduct studies in clinical settings, and facilitate the translation of research into evidence-based practice. In addition to partnering with community leaders and organizations, we engage in interprofessional research partnerships with colleagues in a wide range of fields, from industrial engineering to social work.
