Research Mentorship Program

The Research Mentorship program began in 2012.  The goal of the mentorship program is to provide nurses with the support and skills necessary to conduct a research study in their area of clinical interest and to improve patient care through the implementation of research and evidence based practice projects.

Each year two nurses are selected to work with a nurse researcher from the Center for Nursing Science.  The nurse researcher will help the nurse refine their idea, obtain approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB), collect and analyze data and disseminate their results.  Applications for the Research Mentorship program are accepted each spring and they are reviewed by a committee within the CNR.
