This mentored 10-week summer research experience provides hands-on research experience for UB students who are interested in nursing careers with a strong emphasis in research.
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 the 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, 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 the wish to do so.
Students are placed based on research interests and availability.
Anticipated June 3, 2019 - August 9, 2019 (10 weeks). Dates will be finalized in early 2019. Additionally, participants will be expected to present at the 2020 School of Nursing Research Day in April 2020 (specific date TBD).
$2,500 (One-half paid upon the start of the program and one-half paid upon meeting successful midway-point program milestones.)
