Emma Eccles Jones Nursing Research Center

Premier Space Dedicated to Nursing and Interdisciplinary Research

The Emma Eccles Jones Nursing Research Center (EEJNRC) was established in 2002 with a gift from the Emma Eccles Jones Foundation. The center was created to support faculty and teams to meet, incubate ideas, and develop and implement research proposals and other scholarly grants.

EEJNRC encompasses the fifth floor of the College of Nursing, providing flexible work space for individual and group projects. The dedicated space and the staff support teams provide a state of the art facility in which to conduct research and promote collegial interaction for the advancement of research and scholarly ideology.
