Now is the perfect time to plan for a successful career in nursing research. This mentored 10-week summer research experience provides hands-on research experience. The NURSE program offers you an opportunity to participate in deeply engaging and authentic research experiences working alongside UB School of Nursing researchers. For students who chose to excel, this summer experience can translate into additional professional opportunities to attend scientific meetings and present research to local and national audiences. The opportunity to be mentored by an accomplished nurse scientist cannot be overestimated.
Students will be placed with a UB School of Nursing faculty member to train with their research team. Training will take place both virtually and in-person (if conditions allow). This experience also includes attending seminars with UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Science summer research program, providing an opportunity for interprofessional collaboration.
Meaningful collaborative research projects, designed in conjunction with a faculty mentor, well 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 the wish to do so.
Students are placed based on research interests and availability.
Anticipated June 1, 2021 - August 10, 2021. Additionally, participants will be expected to present at the 2022 School of Nursing Research Day in Spring 2022 (date to be determined).
$3,000 (One-half paid upon the start of the program and one-half paid upon meeting successful midway-point program milestones.)
