The School of Nursing provides opportunities for students to engage in research by collaborating with nursing faculty and through formal mentored programs aimed at developing research interests and abilities. These experiences often lead to professional presentations and publications with students as lead or coauthors. The School of Nursing Center for Nursing Research (CNR) provides methodological and clinical research consultation to the School of Nursing faculty, students and staff. The CNR is a repository for information on internal and external sources of funding, including guidelines and application forms. The CNR also houses a research library and research instrument repository.
