Nursing Research


Associate Dean for Research,
Linda F. C. Bullock

Conducted by teams, at centers and by individual faculty and students, UVA nursing's specialty areas fall into 11 distinct clusters:

  • Pediatric & family health
  • Intimate partner violence
  • Oncology
  • Compassionate & palliative care
  • Chronic disease
  • Mental health nursing
  • Nursing history
  • Quality & safety
  • Dementia & aging
  • Health disparities
  • Interprofessional education

In addition to federal grants, the School also receives funding from private foundations and university grants to stimulate creative projects. All nursing students conduct their own research as individuals, or as part of teams. Opportunities for enrichment are robust -- and limitless.

The School of Nursing’s strong research mission includes a foundation based on collaboration to produce new knowledge. From developing new understandings of human behavior to new models for care delivery, our research teams are energetic, focused -- and growing.
