In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has rallied behind healthcare workers—to both protect and support this critical community that continues to save lives in the face of personal danger. Now more than ever, it’s essential to understand how this workforce of nurses, doctors, and other indispensable personnel can be more effective through scientific research.
As a worldwide leader in interdisciplinary and nursing research, the work of our faculty and students is advancing science and delivering solutions that impact every aspect of health and health care.
The Office of Nursing Research, along with our four research centers and partnerships across Penn, provide students and faculty with resources and support that are virtually unparalleled in our field.
Every day the research produced here shapes policy, promotes better healthcare, helps prevent disease, improves quality of life, eliminates health disparities, and develops the scientific knowledge that drives nursing practice.
