Nursing research advances health

Nursing research is the engine that drives new solutions to help improve health. Nursing research is critical across specialty and administrative areas—from hospitals to community clinics, from skilled nursing facilities to home health-care services, from government and public health agencies to neighborhoods and communities. Research questions address the care continuum from prenatal care to death, delving into symptom management, preventive health measures, health disparities, promoting optimal health, chronic illness, care delivery systems and health politics and policy.

Preparing nurses to advance health in the 21st Century

Just as the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing admitted its inaugural classes of graduate students in fall 2010, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released the Future of Nursing report, a blueprint for optimizing the contribution of nursing to the health of the nation. According to the report, nurses’ roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for high-quality and high-value care, as well as to advance improvements in America’s increasingly complex health system.
