Leaders and Innovators in Research

The College of Nursing is a national leader in nursing research, ranked #23 among Colleges of Nursing for NIH (National Institutes of Health) funding. The NIH is just one source of funding for our research efforts; our total grant portfolio is $27 million. Informatics research is a major strength of our College of Nursing. We house the Utah PRISMS Center, a $5.5 million NIBIB (National Institute of Biomedical Engineering) informatics center focused on integrating air quality sensor measurements into studies of pediatric asthma, as well as R and K mechanism awards for informatics research funded by NINR (National Institute for Nursing Research) and the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ). Another major area of emphasis is care and caregiving related to cancer, aging and end-of-life, with a robust history of extramural funding support via P, R, and K mechanism awards by NINR, NCI (National Cancer Institute) and other funding organizations. Additionally, we lead multiple large-scale training and practice initiatives, funded by HRSA (U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration).

As the only academic health sciences center in the intermountain west, we play an essential role in educating the next generation of nurse scientists, educators, and leaders. We currently have 45 students enrolled in our PhD program. Since 2013, we have offered an NINR funded T32 training program that prepares scientists to study issues related to caregiving in cancer, aging, and end-of-life. We are leaders in robust, high quality distance education. Several of our students are Jonas Scholars, whose research focuses on topics of importance to veteran health.
