Additional Information about NURSE Experience

This program will provide hands-on research experience for UB students who are interested in nursing careers with a strong emphasis in research. This is a mentored 10-week summer research experience. Students will be placed with a UB School of Nursing faculty member to train with their research team. This experience also includes attending seminars with UB's Medical School summer research program, providing an opportunity for interprofessional collaboration.

Meaningful, collaborative research projects, designed in conjunction with a faculty mentor, will match each student's interests and abilities with the needs of the research group. This award is designed as a prelude to pursuing a nursing degree and offers exposure to high caliber research in order to assist students in deciding if an academic career in nursing is right for them. At the end of the program, students will be better positioned to pursue an academic degree in nursing if they wish to do so.
