It has been a very exciting and productive year for the School of Nursing.

Yu-Ping Chang.

The Center for Nursing Research (CNR) was happy to assist our faculty and staff in increasing research and educational funding this year. The progress made speaks directly to the outstanding efforts of our faculty and staff and for recognition of the important research and scholarly work they do on a daily basis. Playing a role in this year’s success was the work that the CNR did to cultivate and build interdisciplinary collaboration for many of the externally funded projects. We will further deploy strategies in an effort to carry this success into the future, including targeting grant opportunities for all faculty based on their expertise, further promoting interdisciplinary communication and collaboration leading to increased funding opportunities, and increasing our grant submission support to include assistance in matching specific projects with appropriate funding opportunities and increased proposal development assistance.

We are looking forward to an even more productive and successful year for obtaining funding for new and exciting projects at the School of Nursing.
