The Institute for Nursing Research and Scholarship (INRS) supports the research and scholarship of faculty, staff and students in the College of Nursing who are interested in clinical practice research, translational science and evidence-based practice. It promotes specific areas of research excellence which provide an environment for faculty with similar interests to collaborate with each other:
- Vulnerable Populations and Health Disparities
- Chronic Illnesses and Co-Morbid Conditions
- Occupational Health
- Quality & Safety
The underlying philosophy is that the pursuit of excellence in research and scholarship is a developmental process that requires support services at all levels of expertise and across all content areas.
